Islamabad, July 2 (TNS): The Supreme Court has allowed PML-N candidate Bilal Azhar Kayani to contest election from NA-66 Jhelum.

Earlier, Islamabad High Court had declared Bilal Azhar Kayani ineligible to contest election.

Giving remarks while hearing the case, chief justice of Pakistan Saqib Nassir said the top court has been labeled as controversial.

Bilal Azhar’s lawyer told the top court that his client had already mentioned in his nomination papers that he will abandon his foreign nationality.

Justice Ijaz Ul Hassan said it not important to vow but law requires certificate of abandoned nationality.
