PESHAWAR: Law Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Sultan Mahmood Khan on Tuesday resigned due to his purported appearance in a video clip showing his purported involvement in horse-trading for 2018 Senate elections.

Chief Minister Mahmood Khan in a tweet said that “As chief executive of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, I have asked Law Minister Sultan Khan to step aside and resign due to his alleged appearance in a video released on social media, to clear his name. We will, as per the vision of Prime Minister, uphold the highest standards of accountability and transparency in this province”.

Sultan Mahmood Khan in his resignation said that “due to a video that is being circulated on media today, in which my name has also cropped up and being mentioned, I feel it is my moral duty and obligation to withdraw from cabinet and offer my resignation”.
