Faisal Vawda seeks stay in disqualification case
March 8, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Vawda has filed a petition in the Sindh High Court (SHC) seeking to prevent the Election Commission of Pakistan from proceeding in a disqualification case against him.

In his plea, the PTI leader requested the court to issue a stay order. The court will hear the case Tuesday.

Earlier, Vawda resigned as a National Assembly member after casting his vote in the Senate election. The record relating to his resignation was sent to the Islamabad High Court.

The court, in its orders, stated that the PTI leader could not be declared ineligible as he had resigned as an MNA. It directed the ECP to review the case and make a judgment in light of the Supreme Court’s verdicts.
