Plea seeking disqualification of Gullalai: IHC dismisses petition

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Friday dismissed plea, seeking disqualification of Ayesha Gulalai as Member National Assembly.

A single judge bench of Justice Aamir Farooq announced the reserved judgment on Friday in petition moved by Kulsoom Khaliq Advocate in-person and remarked that petitioner should approach appropriate forum.

The petitioner apprised the court that Ayesha was elected MNA on the ticket of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) and she remained in the said party and has so far not resigned from the party even after levelling baseless allegations against his party chairman, Imran Khan.

She alleged that Ayesha leveled baseless allegation without any solid proof and material.

Ms. Kulsoom added that such allegations are sufficient enough to disqualify her as MNA, as she has committed misconduct by levelling false allegations against the party chairman.

She continued that she had been approaching the Speaker National Assembly for disqualifying Ayesha but no action required under the law was taken so far.

The bench after going through the arguments placed by the litigants had reserved the judgment which was announced later on Friday, terming the plea non-maintainable.
