Islamabad, June 13: The Pakistan Election Commission has delivered a setback to global terrorist Hafiz Saeed's political ambitions. The Pakistan EC has rejected the application to register Saeed's party Milli Muslim League (MML) ahead of the general elections in the country on July 25.
Earlier, there were reports that the Mumbai terror attacks mastermind's Jammat-ud-Dawah will contest the July 25 Pakistan general elections 2018 on the platform of Allaha-u-Akbar Tehreek (AAT) pending registration for their party MML.
The group decided to contest on the platform of the “dormant” political entity Allaha-u-Akbar Tehreek (AAT), which was registered in the ECP.
“It was a kind of dormant party registered by a citizen Ehsan. There are several such parties registered with the ECP and such an arrangement is made ahead of the general elections if any mainstream party or organisation faces any issue or complication,” a member of the JuD told PTI.
