Verdict reserved on Sheikh Rashid’s nomination papers from NA-56


ISLAMABAD, DEC 30 /DNA / – The verdict regarding the nomination papers of Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid from NA-56 had been reserved on Saturday.

The scrutiny was held again against Rashid’s nomination papers in NA-56. The verdict had been reserved after the completion of the hearing.

Expressing his thoughts, Rashid said, “There is no reality about the allegations levelled against my nomination papers. The fake nomination papers had been prepared. I feel the need to approach the high court or the Supreme Court.”

“I have declared all my assets to the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR),” he said.

Separately, the nomination papers of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder had been rejected from Lahore’s NA-122 and Mianwali’s NA-89 constituencies.

The returning officer accepted the objections of former PML-N MPA Mian Naseer to Imran’s nomination papers.

Returning Officer Sajjad Ahmad Qureshi displayed the list of candidates from the NA-122 constituency.

The objection stated that Imran Khan’s proposer and seconder were not related to the constituency.

The Election Commission of Pakistan has disqualified the former PTI chairman for five years, as further mentioned.

From Mianwali, the returning officer stated that Imran Khan is a defaulter of salaries of social security department’s officials.=DNA
