LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) has been petitioned on Monday against notification of success of 11 PML-N backed independent senators-elect.
The petition has been filed by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Dr. Zarqa Taimur.
The petitioner has adopted a stance that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had overstepped its authority after declaring the ruling party candidates as independent to take part in the Senate elections.
The ECP didn’t have any authority to declare the PML-N candidates as independent in wake of Sharif’s removal as the ruling party president, the petition reads.
Moreover, the petitioner has pleaded with the court to declare the notification of 11 senators-elect, having backing of PML-N, null and void.
