Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) has challenged the acceptance of Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers for NA-120 by-polls.
According to details, PAT’s candidate for NA-120 by-polls, Ishtiaq Chaudhry has filed an appeal in the appellate tribunal against the acceptance of Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers.
An objection has been raised in the appeal that the returning officer had accepted the nomination papers in defiance of the facts whereas there are no details of Kulsoom Nawaz’s Iqama included in the nomination papers.
It has been urged in the appeal that the acceptance verdict of Kulsoom’s nomination papers be revoked. Next hearing on the case will be on Saturday.
It is to be noted here that the by-election on the vacant seat of Nawaz Sharif (NA-120 constituency) will be held on September 17.
