The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday reserved its verdict on the maintainability of a petition seeking the removal of Imran Khan as the PTI chief after his disqualification in the Toshakhana reference.
Justice Muhammad Sajid Mehmood Sethi presided over the hearing to decide whether the plea was admissible for further proceedings.
The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had disqualified Imran in the reference on October 21 under Article 63(1)(p). Subsequently, on Oct 24, the ECP had de-notified him as MNA from NA-95 with “immediate effect”.
The petition, was submitted by Advocate Mohammad Afaq and named Imran, the ECP, the federation and government of Pakistan, and others as respondents.
