Supreme Court announced verdict in Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri plea against election tribunal
*ISLAMABAD - **Supreme Court of Pakistan announced verdict in Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri plea against election tribunal.*
*National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri has been reinstated after the Supreme Court suspended an election tribunal’s verdict disqualifying him**.*
* His parliamentary membership was nullified after the tribunal ruled that there was massive rigging in his constituency and ordered re-polling in the area*
He had filed an application in the top court against the tribunal’s verdict on October 1.
Suri had argued that the tribunal did not review the evidence properly, adding that his disqualification verdict should be declared null and void.
On September 27, an election tribunal declared the election result of the NA-265 (Quetta-II), Suri’s constituency, null and void.
BNP’s Nawabzada Raisani had challenged the victory of BAP’s Suri.
