Nomination papers of Senate candidate Saifullah Abro rejected

Nomination papers of Senate candidate Saifullah Abro rejected

KARACHI (92 News) - The nomination papers of PTI's Senate candidate from Sindh on a technocrat seat were rejected by the election tribunal on Monday.

The appellate bench of the SHC rejected nomination papers of the PTI’s candidate Saifullah Abro for the Senate election. The returning officer's (RO) decision to accept the nomination papers of the PTI leader was challenged by GM Khan and Shahid Ali last week.

The election tribunal took up the petition and heard arguments from both the parties. In its verdict, the tribunal declared the verdict of the RO null and void and ruled that Abro cannot contest the Senate polls.

"The objections raised by the petitioners were proved true and Saifullah Abro does not fulfil the requirement of a technocrat," the order stated.

Key party leaders from three zones of rural Sindh had approached Sindh Governor Imran Ismail to show their anger and demand the party’s high command to take back tickets from Federal Minister Faisal Vawda and Abro.

In the letter, PTI office-bearers from three regions said they were extremely disappointed with the entire process of the selection of PTI's candidates for the Senate polls.

However, these objections were rejected by PM Imran Khan after he held a review of the award of Senate tickets.
