Islamabad: A petition seeking disqualification of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his four relatives from the National Assembly for not disclosing their wealth has been filed on Monday by the main opposition Pakistan People's Party.

Sardar Latif Khosa and Faisal Kareem Kundi of Pakistan People's Party filed the petition with the Election Commission demanding that in addition to Sharif, his younger brother and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif, Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, Sharif's son-in-law Captain (retired) Safdar and nephew Hamza Shahbaz should be disqualified.

 

The petition said that they were not eligible for the membership of parliament as they were involved in corruption and hence not 'honest' as required under Articles 62 and 63 of the Constitution.

The application said that Sharifs failed to reveal the complete assets of the family members. It said Dar also kept secret his son's assets in the UAE, while Safdar failed to mentioned assets of his wife and Prime Minister's daughter, Mariam Nawaz Sharif.

Dawn reported that the PPP had on Saturday finalised the draft of the reference it filed with the commission.
