The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected a review petition by former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani against his disqualification from being a member of parliament. The SC raised objections over the petition, saying the petition was incomplete as it had not been filed within specific time and the security challan was also not attached with the petition. Moreover, the SC stated that the petition had been filed personally and sent through the post, however, the review petition could only be filed through the counsel, in this case Aitzaz Ahsan. On June 19, 2012, the Supreme Court declared Yousaf Raza Gilani disqualified from holding a seat in parliament from the date of his conviction on April 26, 2012 by a seven-member bench for contempt of court. The Election Commission of Pakistan had duly issued a notification of Gilani’s disqualification and declared him ineligible to be a member of parliament.
