Zardari disqualification plea not heard in IHC today

Islamabad: The Islamabad High Court did not hear plea by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders (PTI) for the disqualification of former president Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday.

Sources told that the above mentioned case was not included in the list of the cases to be fixed by IHC. Another date will soon be given by the registrar office for the case to be heard.

Sources told that PTI counsel had pleaded the registrar office to not fix the case for Jan 31 because he had other cases hearing in the top court.

The petition filed by PTI lawmakers Usman Dar and Khurram Sher Zaman had requested the court to disqualify the Pakistan People’s Party co-chairman as a National Assembly member for not being “Sadiq and Amin” under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution.

The case also accused Zardari for owning apartment in Belaire Condominiums located at 524 East 72nd Street in New York which the leader did not tell while nominating for his papers for the 2018 general elections.

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minhallah in the previous hearing observed that the petitioner should have gone to the Election Commission of Pakistan instead.
