LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q)’s MPA Amna Jehangir formally submitted her resignation in person to the Punjab Assembly speaker on Monday shortly after her degree proved to be fake, Geo news reported late Monday.
She went to the speaker’s Chambers with two of her colleagues, Majida Zaidi and Samina Khawar Hayyat, and tendered her resignation.
Whereby she stated in her resignation that due to her domestic engagements, she was unable to continue her membership of the assembly.
Amna Jehangir was elected on a seat reserved for women on the ticket of the PML-Q and was considered close to the Chaudhry family.
It is worth noting that Amna’s resignation paves the way for Humaira Awais Shahid to return to the Punjab Assembly.
The PML-Q had secured 86 seats in the Punjab Assembly and their share in the seats reserved for the women was 14. Humaira’s name is on number 16 in the list, and she would now be declared the returned candidate.
