SC Hears Election Petitions

Supreme Court has upheld the disqualifications handed down by Election Tribunal to PTI'S Mohammad Ali Hakrro from PS-16 and Doctor Shehzad Niazi from PP-90

A two member Bench headed by Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed upheld the disqualification of Doctor Shehzad Niazi on the Ground that a Government Official cannot contest Elections.

The Bench observed that Mohammad Ali Hakrro had not disclosed his Bank Account in the Nomination Papers.

The same Bench, however, dismissed a Petition against PTI'S Aftab Akbar from PP-23.
