SHC rejects petition against president


Express April 21, 2010

KARACHI:

The Sindh High Court (SHC) rejected an application seeking the disqualification of President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday.


Maulvi Iqbal Haider filed the application appealing for a re-examination of the president's nomination papers, in the wake of the Supreme Court's NRO verdict.


The division bench that included Sindh High Court Justice Sarmad Jalal Usmani and Justice Zahid Hamid, rejected the application.


They said the president has immunity under clause 6 of article 41 in the constitution.


The court declared that the presidential election cannot be challenged under the constitution.

Nusrat | 11 years ago | Reply The Supreme Court of Pakistan has gone a bit too far encroaching the domains of the Parliament and the Executive. As an institution of the state, the vohcal pleaders of SCP should have in their minds that there is no term in vogue as 'new' or 'old' court as they utter about present SCP. For all sane argumunts, this SCP is the same as Justice Munir's, Justice Naseem Hasan Shah's and Jusice Anwaar's one etc.
