As per media reports, Qadir Khan Mando Kheel of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has filed the petition in SHC for deseating Faisal Vawda .
The petitioner took the stance that Faisal Vawda has shown his properties of Britain, Dubai and Malaysia as acquired on loan but he has not given the money trail of those foreign properties while no foreign account is mentioned in his nomination papers
‘’Faisal Vawda, the holder of properties worth billions had not paid any text in 2015 ’’, the petition added.
It has been further said in the petition that the Returning Officer (RO) had rejected the plea against Faisal Vawda saying that he has left the dual citizenship but there is no document found in the record of the returning officer (RO) that Faisal Vawda has surrendered his American nationality.
‘’Faisal Vawda does not fulfill Article 62 so he should be disqualified’’ petitioner demanded.
