Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz PML-N leader Pervez Rasheed has challenged the rejection of nomination papers for the Senate elections.

According to the details, the PML-N leader Pervez Rasheed  has filed an appeal in the Election Tribunal of the Lahore High Court. The Election Commission and the Returning Officer have been made parties in the petition.

The registrar’s office objected to Apple’s directive to attach the verified documents.

Pervez Rasheed stated that he is ready to pay Rs 9.5 million to remove the objection of the election commission and said the returning officer had illegally rejected his nomination papers.

It further stated that he tried to remove the objection of the election body, however, it failed to address his reservations.

Payment cheques for the money were also prepared following the demand of the Punjab House, but no information was given regarding the bank.

The previous day, the Election Commission of Pakistan had rejected the nomination papers of PML-N leader Pervez Rasheed.

Addressing media the same day, the PML-N leader said that, ‘Whose words are not tolerated by Imran Khan, they want to silence his voice.”

Moreover, the ECP’s returning officer had rejected Pervez Rasheed’s papers on the premise that he has not paid millions of rupees he owes the Punjab House.
