Dr Farooq Sattar Challenges ECP Judgment in IHC

Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM-P) former convener and leader of his own faction PIB Dr Farooq Sattar on Wednesday submitted a petition in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) challenging Election Commission of Pakistan’s order to remove him as the convener of the party.
The IHC admitted Farooq plea and will take up petition on Thursday.
Farooq Sattar submitted his petition through his counsel Advocate Babar Sattar having the stance that the Election Commission decision regarding intra-party election and MQM convener-ship against the law and it should be termed null and void.
The ECP on Monday had removed Sattar from the position of MQM-P convener by accepting the challenge to his election and rejected his plea that the ECP had no jurisdiction to adjudicate upon internal matters of the party.
