NA Secretariat accepts Shehbaz Sharif’s nomination papers, rejects PTI’s objections

ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly Secretariat rejected the PTI’s objections and accepted Shehbaz Sharif’s nomination papers for the PM’s office.

PTI lawyer Babar Awan raised constitutional objections on Shehbaz Sharif’s nomination papers, saying that cases were registered against Shehbaz Sharif and Article 233 gives the power to accept or reject nomination papers in three places.

Babar Awan has demanded that Shehbaz Sharif’s nomination papers be rejected. There are charges of financial corruption against the PML-N president. He will be the first prime minister of the world who has been on bail for 10 months, Awan added.

The Secretary National Assembly said that the charges should be handed over to him and do not make political speeches. The acting speaker has given the authority to hear the objections, he said.

Qureshi said that don’t interfere in the arguments of our lawyer as this government has not been formed yet and has started rigging. They are already addicted to power, he said.

Later, the Secretary National Assembly declared the papers valid and accepted the nomination papers of both Shehbaz Sharif and Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

On the other hand, while talking to media, Fawad Chaudhry said that we have nominated Shah Mehmood Qureshi as our prime ministerial candidate. ۔

He said that if the objections against Shehbaz Sharif are not accepted then he will resign tomorrow. If they want to make Shehbaz Sharif the prime minister then our decision is to resign, he added.

It may be recalled that PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif has submitted nomination papers for the post of Leader of the House.

The National Assembly Secretariat has convened a meeting of the National Assembly on Monday at 2 pm for the appointment of a new Leader of the House and Shehbaz Sharif is the unanimous candidate for the PM post from the United Opposition.
