Lahore:  Lahore high court’s appellate tribunal on Monday dismissed all appeals challenging the acceptance of PML-N candidate Kulsoom Nawaz’s nomination papers for the upcoming NA-120 by-elections, Dawn reported on Monday.

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) had filed appeals before a tribunal of the high court, challenging the acceptance of Kulsoom’s nomination papers two days after they were filed at the Election Commission of Pakistan’s Lahore office.

In the application filed on behalf of PTI leader Andaleeb Abbasi, it was alleged that Kulsoom’s nomination papers contain a lot of contradictions and were accepted despite her not appearing in person.

In the application filed by PAT, it was said that Kulsoom had concealed her assets and income in the nomination papers.

The PPP also filed objections to the nomination papers on the basis that Kulsoom did not disclose the agreement for a United Arab Emirates iqama (work permit) attached with her nomination papers. They had alleged that while Kulsoom had submitted her work permit as deputy chairman of the FZE Company, she had failed to furnish the salary and employment agreement against which the permit was issued.
