KARACHI: Former chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Monday submitted an application into Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) saying Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif does not fulfill the requirements of articles 63 and 64 of the constitution after Panama Papers revelation of having links with offshore companies.

The former chief justice has sought details of assets of the prime minister. Lawyer of Iftikhar Chaudhry, Sheikh Ahsanuddin has said that after getting details of the PM’s assets, they would file a petition in the court and will seek declaring Nawaz Sharif ineligible for holding a public office.

On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Sahibzada Salahuddin has demanded details of Pakistan Muslim League-N leader and PM’s son-in-law captain (retd) Safdar’s assets. He has also filed a petition in ECP against PM’s daughter Maryam Safdar demanding to declare her ineligible for hiding her assets.

Nawaz Sharif is expected to give a policy statement on the issue of Panama Papers on the floor of National Assembly today. He may announce some necessary steps to ensure transparent probe into the Panama Papers issue and the matter of offshore companies.
