SC to hear review petition seeking disqualification of CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) has fixed a review petition, seeking disqualification of Chief Minister (CM) of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah over allegedly possessing dual nationality, for hearing, ARY News reported.
Petitioner Roshan Ali in his plea said that Chief Minister Sindh, while concealing his UAE work permit and his dual nationality and lying in front of the electoral body during the 2013 general elections, is no more truthful and honest, thus he should be declared disqualified.
Plea would be taken up by the SC bench on January 28. Notice has been served to Syed Murad Ali Shah for the hearing.
A bench of the Supreme Court had earlier dismissed the appeal of the petitioner against a verdict of Sindh High Court seeking disqualification of Sindh CM.
It is to be noted that a Sindh High Court bench had rejected a petition seeking disqualification of Sindh CM for failing to disclose his Canadian nationality and the United Arab Emirates Iqama to the Election Commission of Pakistan.
