Pervez Rasheed dubs Election Tribunal verdict biased


ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervez Rasheed has vowed to move the Supreme Court of Pakistan against Election Tribunal’s decision to de-seat National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Sadiq.


“We respect the decision but don’t agree with it,” Rasheed said, dubbing the Election Tribunal verdict biased.

The information minister said country’s law allows the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to move top court against Election Tribunal verdict which he said punished the ruling party for the mistakes of the Election Commission of Pakistan.

He claimed that history of Haripur, where the N-League defeated PTI in by-election, would be repeated if re-election is ordered in the constituencies of Ayaz Sadiq and Khawaja Sadiq Rafique.
