Government of PakistanPML-N files disqualification reference against Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: In a tit-for-tat move, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) on Friday submitted a reference to the National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq seeking disqualification of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan.

In the reference submitted by the PML-N lawmakers Daniyal Aziz, Talal Chaudhry and others against Imran Khan on concealing assets, they claimed that the PTI Chief did not remain qualify for the assembly’s membership under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution and he should be disqualified.

The reference against Imran Khan was filed days after the PTI filed a petition with the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, (dependents) members of his family and Ishaq Dar for alleged corruption and corrupt practices, mainly focusing on Panama Papers.

The PTI’s Additional Secretary General Saifullah Niazi and Central Information Secretary Naeemul Haq had filed the petition with the NAB on July 25, urging the bureau to “perform its duties” in light of revelations made in the Panama leaks and other ‘facts’ put forth by the PTI in its petition.

The PTI workers also held a protest outside NAB headquarters in Islamabad.
