LARKANA: PPP Women Wing President Faryal Talpur’s nomination papers to contest the 2018 general elections from PS-11 Ratodero, Larkana, were challenged on Thursday.
Objections were raised by two voters of the constituency – Wahab Bhutto and Qadir Baksh. They claimed that Talpur holds an iqama (work permit) and owns three flats in Dubai.
The petitioners said that since PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s sister did not declare all of her assets in the nomination papers, she is not ‘saadiq’ (honest) or ‘ameen’ (loyal).
The returning officer has put Talpur’s papers on hold and summoned parties for a hearing on June 18.
PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s nomination papers from NA-200 Larkana have been accepted.
On Thursday, Bilawal’s lawyer Farooq H Naik appeared before the returning officer on his behalf for the scrutiny of the nomination papers.
