Court Accepts Petition Seeking Imran Khan’s Removal as PTI Chairman

LHC accepts Imran disqualification petition

Web Desk — Imran Khan is in trouble as The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday admitted to hearing a petition seeking the removal of the PTI Chairman after his disqualification in the Toshakhana reference.

Justice Sajid Mehmood Sethi announced the reserved verdict serving notices to the attorney general and advocate general of Punjab. The court also sought replies from the respondents by Nov 11 (Friday).

The petitioner argued that according to the Representation of the People Act 1976 and Political Parties Order (PPO) 2002 it was a legal and constitutional requirement for party officeholders to be qualified in accordance with Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

The petition said that after Imran’s disqualification from the NA-95 constituency it was “just” for him to be denotified as the PTI chairman and order should be issued to this effect.

He contended that a disqualified person could not head a political party under the Political Parties Order and its rules.

The petitioner argued that Imran Khan is violating the laws by continuing to head the PTI, which was a registered party with the ECP.

The lawyer requested the court to order the ECP to remove Imran as PTI chairman and issue directives for the nomination of a new party head.
