*ISLAMABAD – **Islamabad High Court announces verdict in petition seeking suspension of Islamabad Mayor Sheikh Ansar Aziz.*

*The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Monday stopped the federal government from implementation on a reference, seeking suspension of Islamabad Mayor Sheikh Ansar Aziz till February 21.*

It is pertinent to mention here that the reference was filed against Ansar Aziz by the Local Government Commission for allegedly a number of charges.

During the hearing, the court has issued notices to interior secretary, Ali Nawaz, and the secretary of the Local Government Commission. Aziz’s counsel argued that the reference of suspension of his client as the mayor of the capital was unconstitutional.

The court was also pleaded to restrain Special Assistant on Capital Development Authority (CDA) Affairs MNA Ali Nawaz Awan from working as the Islamabad mayor.
