Disqualification under Article 62 inapplicable in my case: Jahangir

Former PM Nawaz Sharif and daughter Maryam Nawaz

In a statement issued on Friday after SC's verdict disqualifying the two key political figures for lifetime, Dr. Nafisa Shah said that PPP has always stood up for parliamentary democracy, and constitutional rule.

The verdict was issued unanimously by all five judges of the bench while hearing a case related to determination of time duration for disqualification of a lawmaker under the Constitution, the Dawn reported.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen has said that he always believed that disqualification under Article 62 (1)(f) is for life but doesn't apply to his case.

Nawaz Sharif and Jahangir Tareen were disqualified under the same article as well after which there were questions that till when this disqualification will last.

The bench announced the verdict - written and ready by Justice Umar Ata Bandial - in a case under which the time period had to be determined for a person if he was disqualified under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution. The Supreme Court reserved the ruling of the disqualification period for 62-1F on February 14 2018. The Supreme Court had also disqualified Jahangir Tareen after he failed to declare an offshore company and a foreign property in his election papers on December 15, last year.

Both former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Mr Tareen were disqualified under the same provision by the apex court.

The former premier had maintained that in his understanding "to take part in election process is a fundamental right and therefore no perpetual disqualification can be imposed on someone by interpreting Article 62 of the Constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan".
