Imran challenges Election Reforms Act 2017 in SC


Islamabad, Nov 6 :Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday challenged the Election Reforms Act 2017 in the Supreme Court, Geo TV said.

In the petition filed under Article 184/3 of the Constitution, Khan maintained that the amendments in Act were in violation of the Constitution as a disqualified legislator cannot become a party chief.

By passing an amendment to the law, which generally pertains to the holding of polls in the country, the ruling party had allowed disqualified prime minister Nawaz Sharif to regain leadership of the party.
