LAHORE: The Election Tribunal has dismissed all appeals against Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif and cleared them to contest elections from Lahore.


Nawaz Sharif will contest elections from NA-120 Lahore, while Shahbaz Sharif will contest election from PP-161 Lahore.


Four appeals were filed against acceptance of nomination papers of Mian Nawaz Sharif from NA-120 Lahore. Similarly, 4 appeals were filed against acceptance of candidature of Mian Shahbaz Sharif from PP-161.


The petitions filed before the Election Tribunal in Lahore were seeking disqualification of Nawaz Sharif on the grounds of many discrepancies and concealment in assets and income statements.


Earlier‚ the Election Tribunal of Lahore had declined to hear the appeals against both PML-N leaders on personal grounds, after which appeals against them were transferred to the new tribunal comprising Justice Nasir Saeed Shaikh and Justice Shahid Wahid.

ECP and Tribunals impartiality was well known. We know the election is not going to be fair for the SC made sure of that when they dismissed Qadri's petition on frivolous grounds.
