Lahore: Election plea against Faisal dismissed
LAHORE: An election tribunal of the Lahore High Court (LHC) on Tuesday dismissed an election petition seeking disqualification of PML-Q MNA Syed Faisal Saleh Hayat.
Former federal minister Begum Syeda Abida Husain, who lost the Feb 18, 2008, general elections to Hayat at NA-69, Jhang-III, alleged Hayat had rigged polls to get result in his favour.
She also alleged that he harassed her supporters on the polling day and the polling staff to secure his victory.
She pointed out that Hayat was a bank defaulter and was not eligible to contest elections.
Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed dismissed the petition, observing that the petitioner had failed to establish allegations levelled against the respondent MNA.
