Earlier, the Supreme Court of Pakistan dismissed the petition to declare the February 8 elections null and void.

A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice (CJ) of Pakistan Qazi Faiz Isa and comprising Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Musrat Hilali heard the petition to declare the February 8 general elections null and void.

The petitioner, citizen Ali Khan, had requested an investigation into election rigging and re-election, but the court rejected the petition due to the  non-appearance of the petitioner.

Added to that, the SC imposed a fine of Rs 500,000 on the non-appearance of the petitioner.

In its order, the court said that the SC received the email of petitioner Ali Khan and informed him about his presence abroad through the email of the petitioner, so the state should ensure that the court martialed person does not use the rank of Brigadier.
