RAWALPINDI: Lahore High Court’s election tribunal bench in Rawalpindi declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf candidate Ayla Malik ineligible to contest by-elections due to a fake degree, Express News reported on Saturday.

Ayla was to be fielded as a PTI candidate for by-election from NA-71 after party chairman Imran Khan vacated the seat, keeping his Rawalpindi seat.

The Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Rawalpindi, had declared her intermediate certificate ‘bogus’ on July 20 that carries the roll number of a male candidate named Imdad Hussain, who too had failed.

A probe was conducted after a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN) petitioner and candidate Obaidullah Shadikhel brought Malik’s credentials to the court’s notice.

Similarly, PTI MNA Ghulam Sarwar Khan’s party membership was suspended after being found with a fake degree.

    Not to be pedantic, but an inter certificate is not a degree. But she is gorgeous, regardless.

    Such a shame. I don’t know why on earth these politicians complaint against army rule? This is their own credibility, fake degrees, corruption, scandals and what not. What an irony, N league’s Sheikh Waqas Akram, a fake degree holder was ‘education minister’ in previous government.

    Cheating is a dumb thing to do, telling lies is even dumber thing to do and getting caught doing such dumb things is the dumbest thing to do. Now, you can guess how should this Ayla Malik be rated. Pakistan Threek-e-Insaaf proved itself even dumber than this tricky woman to fall for such a characterless individual Ayla whatever. I hate to admit I expected better from PTI than failing in its selection of good people for our legislature and help make good laws for our common good and I hate to admit my apprehensions about them, if they can’t even present a few good quality people how can they be given responsibilities to run the affairs of the State.
