Islamabad (Web Desk): The Islamabad High Court (IHC) on Wednesday observed that it could not disqualify Water Resources Minister Faisal Vawda as the PTI leader had already resigned from his National Assembly seat.

A single bench of the IHC comprising Justice Aamer Farooq heared the petition moved against Faisal Vawda by Barrister Jahangir Jadoon.

During the hearing, PTI leader’s counsel argued that the case against him in the court stands ineffective following his resignation.

Earlier the day, Vawda resigned from the National Assembly seat to avoid disqualification in dual citizenship case.

The legal team of the PTI leader tendered his resignation before the IHC, where a disqualification case was pending against him.

The lawyers stated the disqualification case against Vawda has become ineffective after the resignation from the NA seat.
