plea against Zardari on Jan 10 The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday fixed for hearing a reference seeking disqualification of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on January on January 10.
The ECP has not issued any notice to the former president for the initial hearing, which will decide whether the reference is admissible for hearing or not. However; the petitioner Khurram Sher Zaman has been issued a notice by the election body.
The PTI leader had filed a petition seeking Zardari’s disqualification for allegedly concealing a flat in United States.
“Zardari is the owner of a flat situated in New York but the property is not mentioned in the asset details submitted to the ECP,” says the petitioner. “Concealing assets comes under article 62 (1) (f) of the constitution. Zardari has not remained ‘Sadiq’ and ‘Amin’, therefore; he should be declared disqualified,” added the plea.
