Sheikh Rashid makes big announcement after elections postponed in NA 60
RAWALPINDI – Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid on Sunday decided to move court against Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to postpone elections in NA-60 constituency following disqualification of Hanif Abbasi in ephedrine case.
Rashid held stance that elections can only be postponed in case of death of candidate. Rashid sensed conspiracy behind postpone of elections.
While terming decision of postponing unconstitutional, Rashid stated that decision is tantamount to pre-poll rigging.
An anti-narcotics court on Saturday has handed life imprisonment to Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PML-N) leader Hanif Abbasi in ephedrine quota case.
During case’s proceedings, Abbasi provided legal use of as much as 363KG ephedrine whereas he failed in submitting the evidence pertaining to legal usage of 137KG ephedrine case in the court.
