IHC dismisses pleas seeking disqualification of three PTI women MNAs
March 3, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Tuesday dismissed pleas seeking disqualification of three Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) women members of National Assembly (MNAs). IHC Justice Aamer Farooq announced the reserved verdict and declared the PTI MNAs eligible while turning down the petitions against them. The court rejected the petitions filed against the eligibility of PTI’s Maleeka Bokhari, Tashfeen Safdar and Kanwal Shauzab. Three petitions had been filed against the eligibility of PTI’s women MNAs by PML-N’s Shaista Pervaiz, Abdullah Khan and Begum Tahira Bokhari. In the pleas, the petitioners alleged that the PTI lawmakers concealed factual information from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) at the time of filing nomination papers. Tashfeen Safdar was accused of hiding the Supreme Court’s disqualification decision on dual citizenship in nomination papers. Maleeka Bokhari was accused of forging dual citizenship while submitting nomination papers, while Kanwal Shauzab was accused of misrepresenting the vote transfer from the Islamabad High Court.
