LAHORE: Lahore High Court’s Election Tribunal rejected on Thursday the nomination papers of People’s Party candidate Nazir Jatt from NA-167 Vehari.

He was disqualified from contesting the by-polls. Jatt was a member of the National Assembly but resigned after being found with a bogus educational degree.

He was now preparing to contest by-polls for the seat he held earlier.

The tribunal has disqualified another people’s party candidate Allah Wasaya from PP-259 Muzaffar Garh on similar grounds.

Earlier this week Rana Mubashar of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz resigned from his Punjab Assembly seat for allegedly possessing a fake degree.

    “Mard-e-Nadan Par Kalam-e-Narm O Nazak Bey Asar”. Such decisions seldom make any impact on our shameless leaders and our people are least bothered about the character of their representatives.Recommend

    Court should take strict actions against these shameless members of assemblies. The person who is becoming a member by cheating the election commission on oath should be made to refund all the money spent on him. Any member so disqualified should be barred from any appointment as govenment unctionary e.g Jamshed Dasti who has been cleared again for elections and was also appointed an advisor. Similar example is of Latif Khosa and Rehman Malik.Recommend

    There is nothing to worry about him. He is again going to get the party ticket to contest the next election whenever they are held like the other politicians who were previously disqualified.Recommend

    Unless and until there is Democracy within the political parties and they stop following hereditary rule, people like this will always get tickets to contest elections.

    Without a democratic party, there can never be a proper and pure democracy in Pakistan, only an Autocratic rule and one man show.Recommend
