The Judge of the Islamabad High Court (IHC) Justice Athar Minallah rejected the petition for being non-maintainable.

When Justice Athar Minallah asked the petitioner to explain as to what did he see illegal in the process of the presidential election in Pakistan, he couldn’t give a satisfactory answer, forcing the high court judge to dismiss his petition during the initial hearing.

The petitioner contended that the presidential elections are being conducted hastily, therefore, the polls be postponed in order to conduct them later following the legal procedure.

The Election Commission of Pakistan has finalized all the arrangements for the election scheduled for tomorrow.

The ruling party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s candidate, Dr Arif Alvi, Pakistan Peoples Party’s Aitzaz Ahsan and Maulana Fazlur Rehaman, fielded by other opposition parties, have been declared to be the final presidential candidates for September 4 polls.

They had filed their nomination papers for the presidential poll earlier this week which were approved after scrutiny.
