Sheikh Rashid files reference for PM’s disqualification


Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid on Friday filed a reference with the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Rashid submitted in the reference that the premier did not declare his assets in the tax returns he filed in 2013 and hid his assets out of the country so he should be disqualified.

It may be mentioned that this was the fourth reference filed with the ECP for PM Sharif’s disqualification. Leaders belonging to various political parties, including the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) earlier brought references against Nawaz Sharif seeking his disqualification as the country’s prime minister.
