Disqualification limit case: SC summons Sharif, Tareen on Tuesday

    Islamabad, Jan 29: The Supreme Court has issued notices to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s former secretary general Jahangir Tareen to appear in the court in a matter related to the determination of time-period of disqualification under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution.

    The court on Sunday asked them to appear either in person or through their counsel during the hearing of appeals involving, among other constitutional questions, interpretation of Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution under which they both had been disqualified, Pakistan daily Dawn has reported.

    The interpretation will help end the controversy about the period of punishment by determining whether disqualification of a number of lawmakers is for life or time-specific.
