Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali lands in trouble

*ISLAMABAD - **Former Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali lands in trouble over the disqualification case.*

*A court has issued notices to the Election Commission and former interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on a petition seeking his disqualification. *

Nisar had won the Chakri PP-10 seat during the 2018 General Elections. He, however, never took the oath as a member of the provincial assembly and went abroad for medical treatment.

Advocate Nadeem Sarwar has challenged his appointment in the Lahore High Court. Justice Shahid Waheed heard the petition on Wednesday.

The petitioner has argued that it is the right of the people of Pakistan to be governed by their chosen representatives. MPAs and MNAs not taking an oath is a violation of articles 2-A (the Objective Resolution), 17 (freedom of association) and 25 (equality of citizens) of the Constitution.
