Dual nationality: Petition moved in SC against lawmakers

A petition was submitted in the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry on Tuesday, seeking cancellation of the parliament memberships of lawmakers who had failed to submit their affidavits affirming they did not hold dual nationality.
The petition also requested the court to bar the ‘guilty’ lawmakers from contesting the upcoming general elections.
It also called for the cancellation of the basic membership of the legislators “for failing to abide by the law”.
The petitioner had moreover requested the court that the government money spent on such lawmakers should be recovered from them.
It may be mentioned that the deadline of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for lawmakers to submit declarations on dual nationality expired on Nov 30.
