LHC overturns tribunal decision against Abbasi


LAHORE : The Lahore High Court on Friday allowed former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi to contest the upcoming general elections from NA-57 in Murree.
A two-member bench headed by Justice Mazahir Ali Naqvi suspended the appellate tribunal’s judgment and allowed Abbasi’s candidature.
The former prime minister had submitted an application in the Lahore High Court against his life-time disqualification by the tribunal decision,
He took stance in the application that Appellate tribunal has no right to disqualify him for life time, requesting the court to overturn the decision.
