KARACHI: The victory of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) candidate Mirza Ikhtiar Baig in NA-241 has been challenged in Sindh High Court (SHC), ARY News reported.

As per details, a citizen Pervaiz Akhtar filed a petition in Sindh High Court stating that Mirza Ikhtiar Baig is a Canadian citizen and his plea to withdraw his Canadian nationality is still pending.

The complainant urged the court to suspend his NA membership as it is illegal for a dual national to hold an NA seat.

The court sought response from Baig, provincial and federal government and directed the counsel of PPP’s candidate to appear at next hearing on May 16.
