Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Law-Minister Sultan Mohammad Khan steps down from his post after Prime Minister Imran Khan has ordered him to step aside after the leaked video scandal from 2018 Senate Elections.
KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan has asked the law minister Sultan Khan to resign from his post and “clear his name” after his “alleged appearance in a video” leaked on social media from 2018 Senate Elections.
“We will, as per vision of PM, uphold highest standards of accountability & transparency in this province,” the chief minister wrote on Twitter an hour earlier.
Earlier, the Prime Minister has directed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan to immediately remove provincial law minister Sultan Mohammad Khan from the post.
The video that surfaced on media today exposed the horse-trading during Senate elections in 2018 by PTI party lawmakers who could be seen as counting bundles of currencies and hiding it inside the bag.
On the other hand, Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM), Dr Shahbaz Gill in his tweet informed that a report will be presented to the prime minister after carrying out a thorough investigation into the matter.
