Finance Minister Ishaq Dar in trouble

LAHORE: Finance Minister Ishaq Dar acting premiership has been challenged by Pakistan Awami Tahreek here at today in Lahore High Court.

As per details, the petition was filed by PAT advocate Ishtiaq Ch. in Lahore High Court arguing that PM Nawaz cannot transfer his powers to any minister in his absence because it is against the constitution of Pakistan.

PM Nawaz is not present in country due his open heart surgery and would return back after two or three weeks while Finance Minister Ishaq Dar cannot exercise powers of PM in his absence.

He further added that absence of PM Nawaz has created a constitutional crisis in the country so new Chief Executive should be appointed until the return back of PM Nawaz.

The petitioner requested court to order National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq for calling immediate session in order to elect new leader of house as well as to stop Ishaq Dar exercising powers of premier.
