The Election Commission of Pakistan on Wednesday turned down a petition seeking disqualification of PPP leader Faryal Talpur as a Sindh Assembly member for allegedly not declaring her assets.

The top electoral body announced its verdict on a petition filed by PTI leaders Arslan Taj and Rabia Zafar. They argued that the PPP leader should be disqualified under Article 62 of the Constitution as she failed to declare the details of her assets, including properties in Larkana and Shahdadkot, in the nomination papers.

The ECP ruled that the sister of PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari had declared all assets owned by her. The petitioners had failed to substantiate the allegations, it said.
