I always believed 62 1(f) to be for life but not applicable in my case: Jahangir Tareen

Islamabad (Staff Report): Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen came to Tweeter and responded to the the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict that declared former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Jahangir Tareen disqualified for life under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution.


Tareen said that he believes in 62 1(f) to be for life but not applicable in my case because I have money trail.

He Tweeted: “I always believed 62 1(f) to be for life but not applicable in my case. Full money trail provided of tax paid Income, property declared in assets of children and not mine on advice of tax consultant. This was the only issue. My review is still pending and IA justice will prevail”

It is pertinent to remember that SC ruled that lawmakers disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution will be unable to contest elections for the rest of their life .

Article 62(1)(f), which sets the precondition for a member of parliament to be "sadiq and ameen" (honest and righteous), is the same provision under which Nawaz Sharif was disqualified by a five-judge SC bench headed by Justice Asif Saeed Khosa on July 28, 2017 in the Panama Papers case. Likewise, PTI leader Jahangir Tareen was disqualified on Dec 15 last year by a separate bench of the apex court under the same provision.
