ISLAMABAD, Dec 31 (APP):Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) here on Monday fixed the date for hearing a reference seeking disqualification of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari on January 10.
The ECP has issued a notice to the petitioner of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Khurram Sher Zaman for initial hearing.The PTI leader had filed a petition seeking Asif Ali Zardari’s disqualification for allegedly concealing a flat in the United States.
The plea maintains that the former president was elected from NA-213 and the New York property was not mentioned in the asset details submitted to ECP, a private news channel reported.
“Concealing assets comes under article 62 (1) (f) of the constitution. Zardari has not remained ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Amin’ therefore; he should be declared disqualified,” the plea added.
