SC orders re-election in Sindh’s SA-11


KARACHI: Supreme Court on Thursday ordered to de-notify Grand Democratic Alliance’s (GDA) lawmaker Moazzam Ali Khan in the provincial constituency SA-11 and hold a fresh poll.

A three-member bench, headed by acting Chief Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed and comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Qazi Muhammad Amin Ahmad, heard the case.

During the proceedings, the apex court approved Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Nida Khoro’s petition and directed to hold re-election in the constituency.

The PPP member accused the GDA candidate of concealing details of his assets in nomination papers.

The defense lawyer said that GDA leader owns around 140 acres land but he declared 61 acres in the nomination papers as his father holds control of the remaining land.
