PTI petitions Supreme Court against Prime Minister
The party sought disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and an inquiry into the infamous Panamagate scandal.
Speaking to media outside the apex court in the federal capital, PTI’s legal representative Naeem Bokhari said the premier and his family were named in the petition presented before the court today.
In the petition, PTI lawyer adopted the opinion that the prime minister misled the entire parliament regarding the Panamagate scandal on May 16, 2016.
PTI leader Naeem-ul-Haq while speaking outside the Supreme Court supported his party’s stance over the Panamagate scandal investigation and pinned hope that the apex court would disqualify Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif after weighing the pretext of the filed petition.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan and his party had decided to move a petition in the country’s top court last week, resorting to legal ways for launching a probe against Prime Minister’s alleged corruption in the country.
Imran Khan said his party would also consult different political parties to invite them join their September 3 rally in Lahore and added, PTI would come out with ‘full force’ in Lahore, dismissing reservations that the party would fail to ensure a huge turnout at the rally.
Apart from PTI, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and Awami Muslim League (AML) have also filed references against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over the Panamagate scandal, which are currently with the election commission.
