LHC allows ex-minister Saira Tarar to contest polls


LAHORE: A two-judge bench of the Lahore High Court on Friday dismissed an election petition challenging acceptance of nomination papers of former state minister Saira Afzal Tarar.

The bench dismissed the petition for being non-maintainable and upheld the verdict of a LHC tribunal to allow Ms Tarar to contest general election.

The petitioner alleged that the former minister concealed details of her properties in nomination papers.

She neither disclosed the details of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) cases pending against her husband nor her husband’s source of income, he argued.

He pleaded that the election candidate is not qualified to contest the poll under the Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution and pleaded with the judges to disqualify him.
