Disqualification stays IHC throws out Faisal Vawda’s plea against ECP

ISLAMABAD/ KARACHI: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Thursday dismissed former federal minister Faisal Vawda’s plea seeking revocation of his lifetime disqualification.

An Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) bench on February 9 announced the verdict in the PTI leader’s dual nationality case, disqualifying him as a lawmaker, Geo News reported. “…the court has not been able to persuade itself that the impugned order, dated 09-02-2022, suffers from any legal infirmity requiring interference. The petition is, therefore, accordingly dismissed,” IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah — who heard the case — said in the judgment.
