Chaudhry Sarwar dual nationality case: SC announces verdict in suo moto case

ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Wednesday has announced verdict in the dual nationality case against Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar.

SC cleared Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar in a suo motu case concerning civil servants holding dual nationality.

The court's decision came after the Foreign Office submitted a report to the court stating that both Sarwar and Sadiq had permanently renounced their foreign nationalities.

Holding dual nationality can potentially disqualify lawmakers under Article 63(1)(c) of the Constitution.

The top court had taken up the matter in March, soon after the Senate elections. The chief justice had inquired about senators who held dual nationality.
