PESHAWAR: An election tribunal in Peshawar has summoned former president Pervez Musharraf on April 16 over an appeal filed against the acceptance of his nomination papers in NA-32 Chitral, reported Express News.

The appeal stated that since Musharraf’s nomination papers from other constituencies were rejected by returning officers, his papers from NA-32 should also be rejected.

Musharraf’s nomination papers for NA-139 Kasur II were rejected on the basis of six objections raised by Advocate Javed Kasuri and Kasur district bar association general secretary Khalid Latif.

Mere hours after his nomination papers were rejected in Kasur, the former president was also compelled to pull out of NA-48 Islamabad due to a possible threat to his life. His nomination papers for NA-250 Karachi were also rejected on charges of violating the constitution and sacking top judges.

Musharraf expects support in Chitral due to development work conducted in the constituency, including the resumption of work on the Lowari tunnel, under his rule.

The only thing that the Pakistani courts understand I guess is street power. So now the Musharraf followers including lawyers should come out and protest (peacefully0 on the streets and let the biased judiciary know this behaviour is unconstitutional and unacceptable.
