IHC dismisses petition seeking disqualification of Gulalai

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

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

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

She alleged that Ayesha leveled baseless allegation without any solid proof and material. Kulsoom added that such allegations are sufficient enough to disqualify her as MNA.

She continued that she had approached the speaker of 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.
