IHC To Hear Imran Khan Disqualification Case

Islamabad (August 06, 2018): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will hear the disqualification case against to be prime minister Imran Khan today.

According to details, the apex court judge Justice Amir Farooq hear the case.

The petition of Imran’s disqualification was field by Hafiz Ahtesham saying that Imran was not eligible to become a member of national assembly as per the article 62.  Earlier on August 02, a two-member division bench of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) recused itself from hearing an appeal seeking the disqualification of PTI leader Imran Khan for concealing his alleged daughter, Tyrian Jade White after the counsel of a candidate from NA-53, Islamabad, challenged the constitution of the bench.

Abdul Wahab Baloch, NA-53 candidate for the Justice and Democratic Party Pakistan, raised objections over Imran Khan’s nomination papers for concealing his alleged daughter in the nomination papers.

The returning officer (RO) as well as the appellate tribunal for Islamabad rejected these objections and allowed Imran Khan to contest the general elections.Sheikh Ahsanuddin, Mr Baloch’s counsel, argued that the tribunal and the RO had dismissed the objection by saying that only voters of a particular constituency could raise objections.

Under the Elections Act 2017, he argued, an opposing candidate could also file objections to the candidacy of a contestant.

The counsel said, Imran Khan is not Sadiq and Ameen under Article 62(1)(F) of the Constitution.
