Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmaker from Sindh, Khurram Sher Zaman, will file a plea in the Supreme Court today (Monday) seeking disqualification of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairperson Asif Ali Zardari for not showing his assets.
Zaman is a PTO worker and he will file the plea in the apex court through his legal Team against Asif Ali Zardari.
The PTI leader withdrew his appeal from the Election Commission of Pakistan on Jan 10, because he said that he owns a prime evidence against the PPP leader that he would present before the top court.
The PTI lawmaker filed a petition in the Election Commission of Pakistan against Zardari for concealing his assets. He said that the PPP leader owned an apartment in Belaire Condominiums located at 524 East 72nd Street in New York but he did not inform it during his nomination papers for the 2018 general elections.
“Zardari under the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and Rules of the Election Commission of Pakistan, as per past precedent, should be disqualified from holding public office under Article 62 (1)(f), as in my opinion he ceases to be truthful and sagacious.”
Peshawar High Court received another petition seeking his disqualification.
According to which he was blamed that he knew about the UN forces in advance of the raid in Abbotabad in 2011 and did not inform anyone.
The petitioner added: “In 2011, the US force had conducted a covert operation in Bilal Town area of Abbottabad and killed Osama bin Laden. Laden was the founder of the infamous militant group al-Qaeda which claimed responsibility for many terrorist assaults worldwide.”
