Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) Khawaja Ahmad Hassan’s unopposed appointment as Union Council (UC) 107 Chairman was challenged in the Lahore High Court (LHC) today.

The court has summoned appointment notification of the new chairman. Petitioner requested the court to annul the appointment, as Hassan had served as Lahore Development Authority’s (LDA) vice-chairman, so he could not contest the election for two years as he was a public servant.

Justice Shahid Kareem directed the petitioner to attach Hassan’s appointment/ retirement notifications along with the plea.
