SHC rejects plea seeking disqualification of CM Murad


KARACHI: The Sindh High Court rejected Haleem Adil Sheikh’s plea to disqualify Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah after a preliminary hearing.

The court declared the petition of PTI opposition leader Haleem Adil Sheikh inadmissible.

Haleem Sheikh had taken a stand in the petition that in 2013 Murad Ali Shah was disqualified by the Supreme Court for concealing dual citizenship. Despite his disqualification, Murad Ali Shah participated in the by-elections and won.

Haleem Adil further said in the petition that Murad Ali Shah was no more ‘Sadiq and Amin’ therefore he should be declared permanently disqualified under Articles 62 and 63.

However, the Sindh High Court rejected the PTI leader’s plea during the preliminary hearing.
