IHC rejects PTI’s plea against victory of Yousaf Raza Gillani in Senate polls
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) rejected on Wednesday the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) petition against Yousuf Raza Gilani’s victory in the March 3 Senate elections.
IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah heard the plea filed against the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate by PTI MNA Ali Nawaz Awan.
Rejecting the plea, Justice Minallah told the petitioner to use the forum of Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) for resolution first where his case was already being heard.
“This writ cannot be heard on this occasion,” the judge said, adding that courts should not be dragged in political matters unnecessarily.
