PTI leader Ibrar ul Huq faces a big setback from the Islamabad High Court

ISLAMABAD:PTI leader Ibrar ul Huq faces a big setback from the Islamabad High Court.

Islamabad High Court (IHC) has issued stay order on the appointment of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Abrar-ul-Haq as Pakistan Red Crescent Society (PRCS) chairman, on Monday.

According to reports, IHC conducted on a petition filed by former PRSC chief Saeed Elahi against Haq’s appointment, Chief Justice of IHC Athar Minallah has barred the singer-turned-politician from taking charge of the post.

The appointment notification will be suspended till next hearing, he directed.

Subsequently, the court has sought replies from Abrar-ul-Haq, Attorney General and Establishment Division in this regard and adjourned the hearing till November 29.

Earlier, ex-PRCS chairman Saeed Elahi had challenged the appointment of Abrar-ul-Haq in the IHC, stating that the PTI leader has been appointed as chairman for 3 years.

“My term as chairman was same as Abrar-ul-Haq which will be completed in March 2020”, the petition read, adding that it makes the deployment of Abrar-ul-Haq illegal.
