Lahore: The Lahore High Court On Monday reserved the verdict on a petition that seeks the dismissal of Imran Khan, the Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party and former Prime Minister, from his position as the party head.
A larger bench, led by Justice Shahid Bilal Hassan, oversaw the case, and the court requested petitioner Muhammad Junaid to explain how he would be harmed if Imran remained as the party’s leader. In response, Junaid’s lawyer stated that his client is a citizen of Pakistan and a voter.
The court suggested that if Junaid had an issue with Imran’s chairmanship, he could join another political party. The court has not yet issued its decision.
According to the petition submitted by Junaid, Imran was disqualified by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) from the National Assembly constituency NA-95 Mianwali.
Additionally, Imran was disqualified in the Toshakhana case on October 21, 2022.
Junaid claimed that, like Nawaz Sharif, who was dismissed from his role as the head of his party after being disqualified by the court, no one can remain as a party leader after being disqualified.
