The plea was filed on the basis of dual nationality and ‘Iqama’. The returning officer had also dismissed the plea for disqualification of Syed Murad Ali Shah. Justice Muneeb Akhtar observed that the petitioner has not challenged the order of the returning officer at the legal forum. “Why did the petitioner file the petition despite having a proper forum?.
