The Sindh High Court sought a detailed reply from Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and the Election Commission of Pakistan at the next hearing in the lifetime disqualification case.

According to the details,  SHC judge Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar heard the petition against Sindh CM Murad Ali Shah to declare his lifetime disqualification.

The judge remarked that no one has appeared in the hearing to represent Election Commission. The court ordered ECP and the chief minister to submit their replies in the next hearing.

Additional advocate general Shehryar Mehar, during the hearing, told the court that the top court had given clean chit to Murad Ali Shah over surrendering the dual-nationality case after he grabbed the electoral victim in 2014’s by-election and 2018’s general election.

The nomination papers of Murad Ali Shah had also been challenged in the court before the commencement of the election, however, the election tribunal rejected the pleas against him, he added.

After hearing the arguments SHC judge adjourned the hearing for an indefinite period and orders Murad Ali Shah and the Election Commission of Pakistan to submit a response.
