ISLAMABAD, Jun 27 (APP):The Appellate Tribunal on Wednesday rejecting objections against chief of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan allowed him to contest elections from NA-53.
Earlier, Imran Khan appeared before the Islamabad’s Appellate Tribunal to fill clause-N of the affidavit which he submitted with his nomination papers for the constituency NA-53. In clause-N, the PTI chief stated that he set up the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital, established Namal College, and made the nation aware to struggle for its constitutional rights.
Returning Officer, Mohammad Adnan Khan had rejected Imran’s nomination papers last week, along with former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, former Governor Sardar Mehtab Abbasi and PTI’s annoyed leader Ayesha Gulalai for failing to fill clause-N of the affidavit in which they were required to mention the contribution to their respective constituencies during their previous tenure as lawmakers.
The PTI chairman had filed an appeal on June 20 against the rejection of his candidacy. In the appeal, Imran Khan requested the tribunal to cancel the RO’s decision to reject his nomination papers.
The tribunal has already allowed former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, former Governor Sardar Mehtab Abbasi and Ayesha Gulalai to contest polls from NA-53.
