KARACHI - The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to hold inquiry against PPP stalwart Faryal Talpur over holding an Iqama.
A two-member bench of SHC headed by Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar was hearing the petitions seeking disqualifications of Talpur, Siyal and Manzoor Wassan among others for holding Iqamas (work permits) of certain countries and not disclosing them in their nomination papers.
During the hearing ECP’s counsel Shamsul Islam submitted a reply and said, “We have filed our response and are ready to hold an inquiry against Talpur and Siyal.”
However, the bench expressed disappointment at the ECP counsel’s response and said, “We have seen your reply and it says nothing. What is in a one-page reply, we know what work you are doing.”
Justice Ali further remarked, “We sought a detailed response and instead you submitted a one-page reply to simply fulfill your responsibility.”
