Pervez Musharraf challenges rejection of his 2013 poll papers
Musharraf had filed his nomination papers to contest for a National Assembly seat, Dawn online reported.
Musharraf filed an appeal in an election tribunal in Karachi, which was dismissed on April 16, 2013.
Consequently, he instituted an appeal before the Sindh High Court (SHC), which too rejected it through a short order on April 18, 2013. A detailed judgment was delivered on February 14, 2015.
In his petition filed by Senator Farogh Naseem, the former president requested the Supreme Court to set aside, quash and declare the Sindh High Court verdict illegal and without any basis.
The findings of the returning officer, Musharraf's petition argued, were unlawful, conjectural and fanciful because in the light of treason charges pending before a special court, it was now an admitted position that Musharraf had not acted alone while proclaiming the 2007 Emergency.
