The Lahore High Court (LHC) has disallowed the Election Tribunal (EC) from hearing the petition filed by Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan against the National Assembly (NA) speaker, Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq.
LHC has also sought a reply regarding this case from PTI chairman Imran Khan and the EC on November 15.
As per media reports, PTI chairman Imran Khan had filed petition seeking disqualification of NA speaker Ayyaz Sadiq who was elected as member National Assembly from NA-122 Lahore. The petition was to be heard on Monday but the LHC restrained EC from hearing it due to the objection raised by Sardar Ayyaz Sadiq.
NA speaker posited that the documents filed by Imran Khan are not verified, adding that the EC cannot hear the case if the documents are indeed unverified.
