JI to approach court over Elections Bill 2017

JI to approach court over Elections Bill 2017”

The recently-passed bill contains a clause which allows politicians disqualified from holding public office to lead political parties - an apparent bid by the government to re-elect ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president.

The bill will be later sent to President Mamnoon Hussain and it will be a part of the law after his approval.

Muttahida Qaumi Movement of Pakistan (MQM-P) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) have challenged the new Election Bill, 2017 in the Sindh High Court (SHC) here on Monday.

Enraged opposition members had protested the passing of the bill and tore copies of it after it was presented by Law Minister Zahid Hamid.

Sharif also had to step down as PML-Ns leader after his disqualification due to the clauses in the previous PPO. "I congratulate that you're bringing Nawaz Sharif back with full force".

"They surely passed the bill in the assembly on the basis of their edge in numbers, while in the Senate it was completely a legislative fraud", he said.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Awami Muslim League's leader Sheikh Rasheed have also chose to challenge the law.

"Law should rule the country, not one person or a family".

Nawaz Sharif does not even want to see his brother (Shehbaz Sharif) as a party leader, he remarked.

"You can start digging the grave of democracy with your majority", he said while referring to the PML-N parliamentarians. "And Articles 62 and 63 in the Constitution could not be amended through a bill", he said talking to ARY News program 11 Hour.

The Supreme Court in July dismissed Sharif over concealing financial assets and he is now facing trial before an anti-corruption court.
