SC Allows PTI’s Saifullah Abro To Contest Senate Polls

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday binned the plea challenging nomination papers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI’s) candidate for Senate elections Saifullah Abro.

An applicant named Shahid Rind had challenged the nomination papers of Abro against the Election Commission of Pakistan tribunal’s decision.

The petitioner in its plea had pleaded with the top court to disqualify PTI candidate Saifullah Abro from contesting the Senate election on the technocrat seat as the latter did not fulfill the criteria to contest the Senate election on a technocrat seat.

The SC while upholding the decision of the tribunal directed the applicant to contact relevant forum.
