Dasti now eligible to contest elections


Express May 14, 2010

LAHORE: Lahore High Court's Multan Bench dismissed two petitions against Jamshed Dasti. He is now eligible to contest elections.

Dasti had resigned from his parliamentary seat last month when the degree based on which he contested the general elections in 2008 proved to be fake.

But, the ruling PPP awarded him a ticket again to contest from the same NA 178 Muzzaffargarh-111 constituency as contenders are no longer required to hold a bachelors degree in order to contest.

Speaking in the National Assembly on Thursday, Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani had said that the issue of fake degrees is a conspiracy to malign the parliament and urged members to thwart it.
