The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday set aside the decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) against PTI MPA Faisal Zaman.

A bench of the apex court granted appeal of Faisal Zaman against the ECP decision of registering a case against him over a fake degree in year 2013. The top court in its verdict observed that the election commission was not a court of law, neither it was authorized to sent a criminal matter to the sessions court. —INP
