ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) will be taking up on Thursday (tomorrow) a Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) petition against the ‘phase-wise’ acceptance of resignations of its members of the National Assembly (MNAs), ARY News reported on Wednesday.

According to details, Acting IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq will hear the PTI’s petition against National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf for “staging the drama” of accepting the resignations of only 11 party lawmakers.

The registrar’s office of Islamabad High Court has issued a cause list in this regard. The IHC took up the petition after PTI removed the objections of Registrar’s Office on party’s petition.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has submitted the letter of authority and made 123 members parties in the case. Lawyer Faisal Chaudhry is pursuing the case on behalf of PTI.

A day earlier, the IHC directed the PTI to remove the objections of Registrar’s Office on party’s petition. The Registrar’s Office had objected to the absence of authority letter of the respective MNAs from the petition.
