NA-110: Supreme Court gives a blow to PTI Usman Dar

ISLAMABAD – The supreme court of Pakistan on Monday dismissed review petition filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Usman Dar seeking disqualification of defence minister Khawaja Asif.

A three-member bench including Chief justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar upheld the decision given by the supreme court in which it turned down the petition filed by Usman Dar.

The election tribunal had earlier given a decision in favour of PML-N’s Khawaja Asif regarding electoral irregularities however, Usman Dar challenged the decision in Supreme Court urging an inquiry into rigging allegations.

The apex court in November last year dismissed the petition of PTI’s Sialkot leader Usman Dar who was otherwise expecting something different.

Defiant Usman filed a review appeal to de-seat defence minister Khawaja Asif, however the apex court shot down the review petition as well endorsing Asif’s legit election as a legislator.

Chief justice of Pakistan Mr. Justice Mian Saqib Nisar while dismissing the review petition remarked that there was no tangible ground to support the review petition filed by PTI’s Usman Dar.

PML-N stalwart Khawaja Asif contested general elections 2013 through NA-110 and bagged 92848 votes defeating Usman Dar who managed to secure 71,573 votes.
