ISLAMABAD: Three-judge SC bench in a verdict on petitions (filed by PTI, AML, PPP & others) challenging Election Act 2017 has said here today that an individual disqualified under Articles 62 and 63 cannot serve as party head.

Since all the decisions taken by Sharif have been declared null and void, the PML-N will have to give fresh names of candidates for the Senate elections scheduled to be held on 3rd day of March, 2018).

It is pertinent to mention here that, after Nawaz Sharif  was disqualified by the SC from holding a public office, passage of the said Act had earlier enabled Nawaz Sharif to regain his lost position as PML-N head.

Many are wondering about the fate of NA-154 (Lodhran-1) by-elections!
