SC disqualifies PTI MPA Abdul Munim Khan

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court (SC) on Friday disqualified Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) from Shangla, Abdul Munim Khan, for holding on to his position as a government employee until two days prior to the 2013 election.

Khan, who is serving as an adviser to KP Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and a special assistant to the chief minister for tourism, was disqualified as a result of a petition filed by Jamiat Ulema Islam’s (JUI) Sher Alam.

In his petition, Alam had stated that the law did not allow a government servant to contest elections unless there was a two-year gap between the elections and their time of retirement.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), in April 2017, had disqualified Khan on Alam’s petition; However, the PTI MPA had taken a stay on the ECP’s order from the Islamabad High Court.
