In a surprise, PTI withdraws disqualification reference against Asif Ali Zardari

ISLAMABAD - In a surprise, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has withdrawn the disqualification petition against Asif Ali Zarfari.

As per media report, PTI on Thursday withdrew a disqualification reference filed in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) President and MNA Asif Ali Zardari.

PTI’s Khurram Sher Zaman had filed a reference in ECP on December 20 seeking the disqualification of the former president for allegedly concealing his New York apartment in his tax returns.

Taking back his reference today, Zaman while speaking to the media said, "I want to move the Supreme Court against the PPP president."

"We have come across evidence that we will only present before a top forum," the PTI leader stated.

On December 27, the ECP had reviewed Zaman’s reference and accorded approval for an initial hearing.
