FEDERAL MINISTER FOR WATER RESOURCES, MUHAMMAD FAISAL VAWDA ADDRESSING A PRESS CONFERENCE IN ISLAMABAD ON OCTOBER 22, 2018.

ISLAMABAD: PTI Senator Faisal Wawda has requested the Election Commission to dismiss the disqualification case against him.

A four-member bench of the Election Commission headed by the Chief Election Commissioner heard the case of disqualification of Senator Faisal Wawda in which Faisal Wawda appeared before the Commission.

The ECP exempted Faisal Wawda from appearing in person in the case, while Wawda’s lawyer sought time from the ECP to present his arguments.

During the hearing, the Chief Election Commissioner said that two out of four petitioners had not submitted their reply to the Election Commission and all the petitioners would be heard together.

Faisal Wawda told the commission that the Islamabad High Court had dismissed the petition against him. He also requested the Election Commission to dismiss the petitions as the precious time of the Election Commission was being wasted.

At the request of Faisal Wawda, the Chief Election Commissioner said that the decision would be taken only after reviewing the response of the petitioners.

The ECP sought arguments from the petitioners at the next hearing and adjourned further hearing till May 20.
