According to sources in the ECP, there were 212 lawmakers, including some leading politicians of the PPP, MQM and the opposition’s PML-N, who did not submit the affidavit by Nov 9, the deadline set by the ECP on the basis of the Supreme Court’s verdict in the dual nationality case.


Those who have defied the ECP directive include 75 members of the National Assembly and 29 senators. Besides, there are 76 members from the provincial assembly of Sindh, 24 of Punjab, seven of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and one of Balochistan who have not filed declarations.


The ECP, through a letter on Oct 9, had asked MPs and provincial lawmakers to submit within one month declarations which should be attested by oath commissioners to affirm that they did not posses dual nationality, warning that those failing to submit the affidavit on oath would be considered dual nationals and action could be initiated against them.
