ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan declared Nawaz Sharif as disqualified for party presidency on Wednesday, AajNews reported.

The verdict was announced by a three member bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar, on the petition challenging Election Reforms Act 2017.

The verdict comes month after the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) passed a law allowing Nawaz Sharif to remain the party chief despite being removed from the premiership over graft allegations.

Chief justice said that the disqualified person under Article 62 and 63 of the constitution is not eligible to sign any of the document needed for nomination in National assembly or Senate.

Chief Justice ruled out the tickets issued by Nawaz Sharif senate elections.

The senate elections will also be postponed.
