SC issued notice to PM Imran Khan on Ayaz Sadiq’s appeal
The Supreme Court has issued notice to Prime Minister Imran Khan on the appeal of PML-N leader Ayaz Sadiq.
According to details, the Supreme Court heard the appeal of Ayaz Sadiq against re-election in NA-122 in which the court issued notice to Prime Minister Imran Khan. The Supreme Court also issued notices to the Election Commission and NADRA.
During the hearing, the ECP lawyer argued that Imran Khan had paid all the expenses but after losing the case, Ayaz Sadiq was asked to pay all the expenses.
Ayaz Sadiq argued that despite being a speaker, I was called a liar and a fraud.
Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial said that how many elections have you won after being de-seat?
Ayaz Sadiq said that after being de-seat, I have won all the elections. The impression that has been made against me is the real problem.
Chief Justice of Pakistan said that people vote for you then how the impression is formed.
Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar remarked that if there is an issue of contempt, then file a separate case.
The former speaker of the National Assembly said that the case of contempt has been going on for many years. It is a matter of honor and does not want anything else from Imran Khan.
The Chief Justice said that the term of 2013 Assembly has come to an end.
The lawyer said, Ayaz Sadiq was fined for which an appeal has been lodged. It has been ordered to pay the expenses of NADRA and record review. If the mistakes were made by the Election Comission staff then why should Ayaz Sadiq pay?
Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial said that they would decide only after hearing the stance of Imran Khan. The case will be heard soon.
Ayaz Sadiq said that he did not hide behind the restraining order. I have contested re-election and won. The purpose of the lawsuit is to prove myself inculpable.
