Federal Minister Faisal Vawda has challenged the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) regarding his disqualification and has filed a petition against the commission in the Sindh High Court, Geo News reported Monday.
The Election Commission of Pakistan has filed three petitions seeking the disqualification of Faisal Vawda, who is a former member of the National Assembly as well as a recently-elected Senator.
Faisal Vawda has filed a constitutional petition in the Sindh High Court to stop the decision of the ECP in relation to his disqualification. He has resigned as a member of the National Assembly.
The petition states that the Election Commission does not have the authority to hear complaints against him, adding that it should be ruled that such actions are not within the jurisdiction of the commission.
The court has accepted Vawda's petition and a hearing related to that will be held on Tuesday, March 9, 2021.
Petitioners against Vawda contend that he had dual citizenship when he filed his nomination papers in the 2018 general elections, a fact that he had concealed at the time. Therefore, he should be disqualified.
