*ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) claimed to have key evidence against the PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari that would be furnished before the top court*
A four-member ECP commission conducted hearing of the plea today. PTI leader Khurram Zaman, at the outset of hearing, requested to withdraw his petition stating he wanted to approach the Supreme Court for the case. Zaman is the PTI lawmaker from Sindh.
The ECP asked him to submit an application for withdrawing his appeal, so the election commission could dispose of his petition.
“I’ve got the evidence that should be produced before the Supreme Court,” he added.
The PTI lawmaker had moved the petition in the ECP accusing Zardari of concealing his assets. He alleged that the PPP leader owned an apartment in Belaire Condominiums located at 524 East 72nd Street in New York but didn’t disclose it in his nomination papers for the 2018 general elections.
“Zardari under the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and Rules of the Election Commission of Pakistan, as per past precedent, should be disqualified from holding public office under Article 62 (1)(f), as in my opinion he ceases to be truthful and sagacious.”
