LHC dismisses plea seeking PM’s disqualification

LAHORE: Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah of the Lahore High Court on Tuesday dismissed a petition seeking disqualification of Prime Minster Nawaz Sharif and Interior Minister Nisar Ali Khan for allegedly lying to the nation over the issue of inviting Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif to act as an arbitrator and guarantor in the continuing political crisis.
Justice Shah observed that the question in hand regarding the statement made by the prime minister on the floor of the National Assembly as well as the press release issued by the ISPR falls within the domain of “political question” and cannot be adjudicated. He said that the petitioner could agitate this matter before an appropriate political forum.
