Sardar Ayaz administers Jahangir Tareen’s oath

ISLAMABAD - Newly elected legislator of the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Jahangir Khan Tareen on Friday took oath as Members of the National Assembly, Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq administered the oath.

PTI’s Tareen had defeated Pakistan Muslim League-N candidate Siddique Khan Baloch in the by-polls for NA-154 Lodhran, held on December 23.

The seat fell vacant after Baloch had been disqualified by an election tribunal on August 26 on a petition filed by Tareen, who had accused his rival of possessing a fake educational degree and committing massive irregularities during the 2013 general elections.

However, the Supreme Court of Pakistan set aside the tribunal’s decision and ordered re-election, allowing PML-N’s ticket holder to take part in the by-polls.
