Musharraf challenges rejection of nomination papers from Kasur





Former president and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML) Pervez Musharraf on Wednesday challenged the rejection of his nomination papers filed from NA-139, Kasur.

Per reports, the former military ruler, who is facing a high treason trial in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, has also challenged rejection of his nomination papers he filed for Islamabad’s NA-48.

After objections of rival candidates, Musharraf’s nomination papers were also rejected from Karachi’s NA-250,but accepted from Chitral’s NA-32.

“I must be allowed to contest elections as I have served this country for eight years,” Musharraf said, who returned last month after nearly four years of self-imposed exile to contest May 11 elections despite possibility of arrest on various charges and death threats from militant groups.
