ECP verdict on plea seeking eligibility of PPP’s Faryal Talpur

ISLAMABAD: The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on Monday reserved the verdict on a petition seeking disqualification of Pakistan People’s Party leader and former president Asif Ali Zardari’s sister Faryal Talpur as a Sindh Assembly member.
A five-member bench, headed by Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja, reserved its judgement, which will be pronounced on February 8.
During the hearing, Farooq H Naek, a counsel for Ms Faryal Talpur, requested the bench to dismiss the plea for being non-maintainable.
Two Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders Arsalan Taj and Rabia Azfar had moved the petition in the ECP seeking disqualification of Ms Talpur as member of the provincial assembly over allegedly concealing her assets.
