Shortly after the Supreme Court's ruling that the parliamentarians disqualified under Article 62 (1)(f) can not contest elections for life, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen expressed optimism that the apex court hearing his petition seeking review of its verdict that disqualified him as member of Parliament will decide the case in his favour.

The verdict was issued unanimously by all five judges of the bench while hearing a case related to determination of time duration for disqualification of a lawmaker under the Constitution, the Dawn reported.

She said that we gave Mian Nawaz Sharif opportunity to make himself accountable before the parliament on Panama scandal but he preferred to take the matter to court for which he has to pay for.

A three-judge SC bench headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar had on Dec 15 a year ago disqualified Mr Tareen under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution for deliberately submitting a false statement to the apex court to hide his property in the United Kingdom.

Chief Minister Pervez Khattak said on Friday that the Supreme Court's lifetime ban for holding public office on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was the result of his own actions.

It is worth mentioning here that Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution sets the precondition for a member of the Parliament to be "Sadiq and Ameen" (Honest and Righteous). On the other hand, the main leader of the Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Jahangir Tareen was also trialed under the same article and disqualified as a member of the parliament.

On February 6, Nawaz had informed the court that he would not be partaking in the proceedings after the bench had issued him notices. "They enjoy an inalienable right to elect their representatives through a true democratic process and not be given the list of selective people through the process of elimination".
