Appellate Tribunal disqualifies former PM Abbasi from contesting election
ISLAMABAD: Appellate Tribunal Rawalpindi has issued the written judgment of rejecting nomination papers of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi from NA-57 Murree.
The eight-page verdict issued by Justice Ibadur Rehman Lodhi declared that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi is not eligible to become Member of Parliament under Article 62 (1) (F) of the constitution as he is not Sadiq and Amin.

He also under declared his assets in nomination papers which is a clear discrepancy in oath of Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.APP
