SC re­in­states Sul­tan Hin­jra MNA from Muzaf­far­garh

Tri­bunal rul­ing over­turned

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

IS­LAM­ABAD—The Supreme Court on Fri­day an­nulling the Elec­tion Tri­bunal rul­ing has re­stored the mem­ber­ship of Na­tional As­sem­bly mem­ber Sul­tan Mah­mood Hin­jra of PML-N elected from NA 176 Muzaf­far­garh. The top court over­turned elec­tion tri­bunal de­ci­sion for re-elec­tions in the con­stituency.

The three-mem­ber bench of the apex court com­pris­ing Chief Jus­tice An­war Za­heer Ja­mali, Jus­tice Amir Hani Mus­lim and Jus­tice Iqbal Hamee­dur Rehman an­nounced its re­served judg­ment. The top court de­ci­sion au­thored by Jus­tice Iqbal Hamee­dur Rehman was re­served on April 20, 2016.

It is worth men­tion­ing here that the elec­tion tri­bunal on July 18, 2014 had dis­qual­i­fied Hin­jra on the al­le­ga­tions of rig­ging. Af­ter his dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tions Hin­jra had moved the Supreme Court. Loser can­di­date Ghu­lam

Hin­jra was also al­leged to have won the elec­tion in NA-176 through fake re­sults ma­nip­u­lated by re­turn­ing of­fi­cers. These al­le­ga­tions had led to dis­qual­i­fi­ca­tion of Hin­jra.
