Candidacy of Jam Khan Shoro challenged in SHC


HYDERABAD: The acceptance of nomination forms of former provincial minister Jam Khan Shoro for PS-62 Qasimabad constituency has been challenged in Sindh High Court (SHC).

The court has issued notices to the respondents including Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), returning officer (RO) of PS-62, Shoro and other respondents to submit reply on July 17.

The petitioner, Mehboob Abro, claimed that Shoro is not qualified to contest the elections. He alleged that the former provincial minister was involved in forging the land record and for failing to declare his assets.

Abro prayed the court to set aside decisions of the RO and the Election Tribunal Karachi and disqualify Shoro.
