SHC throws out Haleem's petition seeking disqualification of Sindh CM
The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Tuesday threw out the application filed by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader and Leader of the Opposition in the Sindh Assembly (SA) Haleem Adil Sheikh against Chief Minister (CM) Syed Murad Ali Shah for allegedly concealing his ‘dual nationality’, saying it was inadmissible for hearing, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Earlier, a two-member of the SHC, led by the chief justice (CJ), had reserved the verdict in the case.
The PTI leader, in his petition, had stated that despite the fact that the Supreme Court (SC) had declared the present Sindh CM ineligible to contest elections in 2013 for concealing his dual nationality; still he contested the by-election held afterward and won it.
SHC Chief Justice Justice Ahmed Ali M Sheikh and Justice Yousuf Ali Sayeed heard the petition.
