ISLAMABAD:

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Thursday reserved its verdict on petitions registered against PTI Senator Faisal Vawda calling for his disqualification due to concealing his dual nationality.

Qadir Khan Mandokhel, Mian Faisal and Mian Asif Mehmood subsequently filed petitions in the ECP on January 21, 2020, seeking Vawda's disqualification.

A citizen, Dost Ali, also filed a similar petition in 2020 challenging Vawda's election as a member of the National Assembly.

The petition stated that when Vawda filed his nomination papers for contesting elections, he held dual nationality as he was a US citizen as well.
