ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to challenge the nomination papers of Ishaq Dar, PML-N candidate for upcoming Senate elections in March.

PTI will point out that corruption case against Ishaq Dar is being heard by NAB court and in such situation he should not be allowed to run for Senate membership.

PTI leader Muhammad Sarwar and Main Mehmood ur Rasheed will lead a legal team to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), and challenge the nomination papers of the ex-Finance Minister.

With nine of the PML-N Senators retiring in March after completing their three-year tensure, the ruling party has remained Dar as Senate candidate.

Dar submitted his nomination papers from Punjab where PML-N maintains heavy majority in the provincial assembly.
