Supreme Court (SC) has declared Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) spokesperson Fawad Chauhdary qualified to contest election from his home constituency of NA-67, Jhelum.

As per media reports, a two-member bench of SC headed by Justice Azmat Saeed Tuesday took up for hearing the petition filed against acceptance of the nomination papers of Fawad Chaudhry .

Court allowed Fawad Chauhdary to contest election while dismissing the petition filed by the candidate of justice and Democratic Party Syed Fakhar Haider rival candidate of Fawad Chauhdary after hearing.

Justice Azmat Saeed inquired from the petitioner that you had not filed any objection at the time of submitting the nomination papers.

The decision of rejection of appeal should be challenged rather than filing new  petition court added. Petition can not be filed against one order on the same forum. It can not happen that you are bowled out while playing cricket and then demand second turn.

It is to be mentioned that Fawad Chauhdary is contesting election from the seat of National Assembly NA-67 Jhelum and the petitions filed with reference to his disqualification have been rejected from Election Tribunal and Lahore High Court (LHC)
