Imran's party to appeal to SC for 'corrupt opposition leaders' disqualification'

Islamabad, Sat, 10 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 10 (ANI): The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is reportedly preparing for a legal battle against its rivals, by seeking their disqualification from parliament.


Top PTI leaders said they might approach the Supreme Court with a fresh petition for disqualifying all politicians, including former premier Nawaz Sharif, who received money from the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) for electioneering in 1990.


"Yes, we are considering this option ... these corrupt people must be punished and disqualification is what they deserve," The Express Tribune quoted a PTI leader, as saying.


Hearing into the 1990 election rigging scandal in the Supreme Court has not only brought notoriety to the country's premier spy agency for involvement in politics, but also to various politicians associated with the agency.


Although Nawaz and his party had already admitted receiving the money, they insist that it was taken 20 years ago, and that the party's ideology has evolved since then.


A top leader of the PML-N said the party apologised to the nation when Nawaz signed the Charter of Democracy with Benazir Bhutto in 2005.


"There is no need for a fresh apology ... we have done that," MNA Ahsan Iqbal, deputy secretary-general of the PML-N, said. (ANI)
