The appeal against Farooq Sattar’s nomination papers will be held today (Thursday).

The appeal was filed by Imran Kazmi after Sattar’s nomination papers were approved for three Karachi-based constituencies, ​NA-241, NA-245 and NA-247.

According to the latest appeal, Sattar is an absconder and failed to mention the loan he took out to buy a Land Cruiser.

The appeal also stated that Sattar declared the cost of the car as Rs9 million during a press conference but the cost mentioned in his nomination papers was different.

Sattar’s nomination papers were initially rejected by the returning officer but were approved on Wednesday after he appealed the RO’s decision in the election tribunal.

The general elections will be held on July 25. According to the schedule, Election Commission will issue the final list of candidates today.
