The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Saturday said it would take up Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Faisal Vawda’s disqualification case for hearing on Monday (April 5), reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Babar Sattar will hear the case. 

Mian Faisal, the petitioner, has prayed to the court to declare the single bench's verdict null and void by declaring Vawda disqualified from holding any public office for submitting a fake affidavit. 

He said that Faisal Vawda had dual nationality at the time of submission of his nomination papers before 2018 general elections, but he had lied to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).  

The case, which was to be taken up for the hearing last week, could not be heard because of the non-availability of the bench.
