ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Islamabad High Court (IHC) disqualified Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) member of Punjab Assembly (MPA) Chaudhry Kashif Mehmood for possessing a fake degree on Friday. Justice Amir Farooq announced the verdict in the disqualification case in an open court against Chaudhry Kashif Mehmood. The IHC also directed the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to de-seat the lawmaker. It is noteworthy that Kashif Mehmood had won the election from PP-241 constituency in Bahawalnagar-V during 2018’s general election on the ticket of PML-N. The petition had been filed by Abdul Ghaffar that sought disqualification of Mehmood as he had allegedly contested the 2018’s general election on basis of a fake educational degree. The petition also stated that the PML-N lawmaker had not mentioned his ineligibility in the 2013’s polls during the last election to hide realities and also submitted a fake affidavit. Advocate Sarwar Chaudhry said Kashif Mehmood don’t meet the criteria of Article 62(1)(f) and pleaded the court to disqualify the lawmaker. Earlier on November 5, the court reserved the verdict in disqualification case against the PML-N MPA.
