BHC election tribunal de-seats NA deputy speaker Qasim Suri

Quetta (Staff Report/Agencies): The Balochistan High Court's election tribunal on Friday declred the election of National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri as null and void, ordering a reelection in NA-265 constituency (Quetta - II).


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Suri’s election had been challenged by Nawabzada Lashkari Raisani, allegeding that out of the total votes cast in NA-265 during polls, more than half had been invalid, and thus the election win stood null and void.

After hearing the arguments to both sides of the case, the tribunal headed by Justice Abdullah Baloch had reserved a decision in this regard earlier this month.
