KARACHI: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) lawmaker and noted columnist Ayaz Amir has been granted permission to contest elections in the May 11 polls, Express News reported on Wednesday.
The Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi Bench Election Tribunal, accepted his papers and changed the decision made previously by a returning officer who had declined his nomination.
Amir’s nomination papers for his constituency NA-60 in Chakwal were rejected because he allegedly wrote articles against the “ideology of Pakistan”. This column was read in court today and was found to be non-objectionable by the bench.
The PML-N leader had earlier pleaded for his candidature and claimed that he did not write any objectionable article.
