Supreme Court moved against lifelong disqualification of Nawaz, Tareen​

SCBA president prays SC to slap such a ban only in electoral disputes: Says it’s also a violation of voters’ basic rights​

Supreme Court moved against lifelong disqualification of Nawaz, Tareen


  • Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Muhammad Ahsan Bhoon on Thursday filed a constitutional petition in the Supreme Court (SC) against the lifelong disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) estranged leader Jahangir Khan Tareen from holding any public office, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
It is contended in the petition that the sentence of disqualifying a people’s representative for life should only be given in cases involving electoral disputes.
The petition further says that under Article 184/3 of the constitution, the Supreme Court could not act as a trial court because section 3 of the Article denied the right to appeal the court’s decision.
“And that not giving to the aggrieved party the right to appeal in such cases is against the principles of justice. It constitutes the violation of basic human rights of not only the public representative but also of the people who have returned him or her to the legislature,” reads the petition.
Furthermore, it says that the apex court in its verdicts in the cases of Nawaz Sharif and Jahangir Tareen had determined the parameters of Article 62 1-F of the constitution. “Truth of the matter is that only that election should be declared null and void which has been challenged under the said Article.
A five-member bench of the SC had had on April 13, 2018 imposed a lifelong ban on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif from holding any public office.
Although the court had disqualified Sharif as prime minister over corruption charges last year (July 28, 2017), but it had not mentioned the disqualification period in the verdict.
The five judges in a unanimous ruling said those who are not “honest” and “truthful” under the country’s constitution are “banned from parliament for life.”
Jahangir Khan Tareen, who belongs to the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, was also declared disqualified for life under the judgment.

Your disqualified for life leader is not coming back. All these attempts are futile.

Not yet but its neither launch by nawaz nor tareen. Supreme court can not decide on this as punishment already been made they can hear appeal on this but that should come from tareen or nawaz.

It appears the selectors have selected their next pawns for election 2023. What a shame, now the establishment is going to use the biggest thieves in Pakistan namely Nawaz and Tareen against PTi. Same game they’ve been playing from the past 50 years. This circle will never end in this country, keep the public busy fighting with each other in the name of political parties while no one can raise a finger on their own misdoing.
The new GHQ aka strategic command being built on the most expenseive and prime real estate in the heart of Islamabad is the most recent example of such misdoing. Unfortunately no can question that though if someone by any chance dares to do so we all know what happens to them.
That’s the main reason politics was unable to evolve in our country which is why our nation is unable to produce true leaders. Ultimately, it’s the people of our country who will be the losers at the end, as always.
