PM Imran Khan gives a strong blow to the PTI dissident MNAs
*ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Thursday approached the Supreme Court (SC) seeking lifetime disqualification of its dissident Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) under Article 184(3) of the Constitution. *
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan filed a plea in apex court via his counsel Babar Awan. Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), National Assembly (NA) speaker, Law secretary and secretary cabinet have been respondents in the petition.
The petition was filed under Article-184(3) of the Constitution, requesting the apex court to impose a lifetime ban on PTI’s dissident MNAs, including Raja Riaz, Nawab Sher, Basit Sultan Bokhari, Noor Alam Khan, Wajiha Qamar and others as they are no more ‘sadiq’ (truthful) and ‘ameen’ (righteous).
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf initiated legal action against the dissident MNAs as the deadline given to the PTI turncoats for submitting their clarification ended.
