IHC Reserves Verdict On Plea Seeking Disqualification of Three PTI MNAs

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has reserved a verdict on a petition seeking disqualification of three women lawmakers of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The Islamabad high court (IHC) bench, headed by Justice Amir Farooq, reserved the verdict upon completion of arguments by lawyers representing the petitioners as well the respondents.

During the hearing, Justice Farooq questioned the Election Commission’s lawyer if any petition seeking disqualification of a legislator elected on a reserved seat has ever been filed before an election tribunal, to which he replied in the negative.

PML-N leaders Tahira Bukhari and Shaista Pervez had moved the petition seeking disqualification of PTI’s Kanwal Shauzab, Malaika Bukhari and Tashfeen Safdar under Article 26 and 63 of the country’s Constitution.
