PTI challenges acceptance of Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Saturday challenged in the Lahore High Court a returning officer’s acceptance of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz candidate Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers for the upcoming NA-120 elections.

The Election Commission of Pakistan’s returning officer for the constituency had accepted Kulsoom’s nomination papers on Thursday after Senator Asif Kirmani appeared in her place to respond to reservations, Dawn online reported.

The application, filed on behalf of PTI leader Andaleeb Abbasi, said Kulsoom’s nomination papers contained a lot of contradictions and were accepted despite her not appearing in person.

Numerous laws were violated while accepting Kulsoom’s nomination papers, which is why they should be rejected by overturning the returning officer’s decision, the application said.
