The Supreme Court on Monday issued notices to Prime Minister Imran Khan and other parties in a petition seeking the disqualification of Zulfi Bukhari, the premier’s special assistant on overseas Pakistanis and human resource development.
A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar accepted the plea for hearing.
The petitioners Muhammad Adil Chattha from Lahore and Mirza Abdul Moiz Baig from Karachi adopted a stance that Bukhari does not hold any designation.
During the hearing, the CJP remarked, “How the designation of a special assistant can be equal to federal or state minister?”
“According to the petitioner, Zulfi Bukhari posses dual nationality. Such a person can neither become a member of parliament nor a minister,” he added.
