Islamabad, Sep 28 (UNI) The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and lawyers will file objections to President Pervez Musharraf's candidature before the Election Commission tomorrow.

The EC had rejected their demand to supply a copy of the nomination papers of the President.

Senator Sardar Abdul Latif Khosa, who was part of the team of PPP leaders who filed nomination papers for party candidate Makhdoom Fahim Amin, said Chief Election Commissioner Justice (Retd) Qazi Muhammad Farooq asked them to file their objections in writing.

The PPP legislator said when they tried to convince Justice Farooq, who is the returning officer for the presidential polls, for provision of the copy so that objections could be framed in the light of it, he assured them that it will be supplied tomorrow, The News reported.

''We want to have a look at General Musharraf's nomination papers, particularly the copy of his graduation degree and some other documents,'' he maintained.
