Former president General (R) Pervez Musharraf on Saturday challenged a lifetime ban from politics slapped on him by a Peshawar court.
Musharraf also submitted an appeal in the apex court for release in the judges’ detention case.
The former president filed these two appeals in the Supreme Court through his lawyer Ilyas Siddiqui.
The Peshawar High Court (PHC) in April had placed a lifetime ban on the former military ruler for contesting elections.
During the hearing, the court noted that Pervez Musharraf could not be allowed to contest elections as he had abrogated the Constitution twice.
In the appeal, Musharraf’s lawyer said that there was no clause in the Constitution regarding life ban and the PHC exceeded its powers to ban him for life to hold any public office.
