The Nation  |  May 14, 2021

Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said on Thursday that reports of putting Shahbaz Sharif’s name on Exit Contol List ( ECL) on Eid day were not correct.

In a tweet, he said no such notification has been issued yet.

However, the Cabinet Committee has recommended that Shahbaz Sharif’s name should be included in the ECL and it will be implemented as per normal procedure, the minister remarked. 

Earlier it was reported that the name of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has been put on Exit Control List (ECL) after the federal cabinet approved it through a circulation summary.

According to the details shared by the interior ministry sources, the federal cabinet reportedly directed the concerned department via a circulation summary earlier today.

A sub-committee of the federal cabinet decided to place the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President’s name on ECL.
