Islamabad (Web Desk) Election Commission of Pakistan has suspended former finance minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Ishaq Dar as a senator, national media reported.
The ECP suspended his senate membership in light of the order of the Supreme Court in this regard.
Dar faces several cases including possessing assets beyond known sources of income, and left for London last year on the pretext of medical treatment and has not returned ever since.
The National Accountability Bureau has decided to approach Interpol to bring Dar back.
On Feb 26 this year, the anti-graft watchdog filed a supplementary reference against Ishaq Dar in the assets case with regard to alleged accumulation of wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income.
Three co-accused, including National Bank of Pakistan President Saeed Ahmed, Mansoor Raza and Naeem Mehmood, were also nominated in the reference.
