SC dismisses dual nationality cases against Chaudhry Sarwar, Nuzhat Sadiq

ISLAMABAD: Dual nationality cases against Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Nuzhat Sadiq were dismissed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday.

Earlier this year, the apex court had taken a suo motu notice of the issue of civil servants holding dual nationalities.

Under Article 63(1)(c) of the Constitution, lawmakers holding dual nationalities can potentially be disqualified.

During the hearing on Wednesday, a report submitted to the top court by the Foreign Office stated that Sarwar and Sadiq had renounced their foreign nationalities.

In response to the report, the cases against Sarwar and Sadiq were dismissed by the apex court.
