Hafizabad: UC nazim, deputy disqualified
HAFIZABAD: A local additional district and sessions judge, who was acting as election tribunal for Gujranwala district, has disqualified a union council nazim and naib nazim pair after finding that the nazim’s graduation certificate was fake and naib nazim’s nomination papers did not carry assets declaration.
Model Town UC 40 nazim Sheikh Salim had attached his graduation degree along with his nomination papers. His rival Amir Akram challenged the authenticity of the nazim’s degree and also the absence of assets declaration along with naib nazim’s nomination papers through an election petition.
The petition came up for hearing before local additional district and sessions judge, Salahuddin, who found that the allegations were true. Later, the court disqualified nazim Sheikh Salim and naib nazim Khalid Butt and ordered polling afresh.
