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".
