In what has to be a historical move, the Election Commission of Pakistan has rejected the nomination of the ex-PM of Pakistan, Raja Pervez Ashraf, more popularly known as Raja Rental. According to Geo News, his nomination was rejected after accusations of nepotism and the misappropriation of funds.

He is not the first politician whose nomination has been rejected, and he shall have the right to appeal this decision within the next three days, though it is doubtful whether an appeal would be very helpful. The cases against him are said to be very strong.

Thus, Raja Pervez Ashraf joins a long list of politicians who have been rejected by the ECP, in accordance to Article 62 and 63 of the constitution. Verily, for the first time, it seems that many of the corrupt people are being weeded out.
