Annul dual nationality case complaint: Malik to SC
Islamabad: Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik, in his reply to the Supreme Court in the dual nationality case, has asked the Supreme Court to dispose of the complaint registered against him, saying that the case has stirred a controversy, which led to his resignation as a senator.
Malik had to resign from the Senate after the apex court suspended his upper house membership for allegedly running for the Senate in 2009 while still holding British citizenship, reports The Express Tribune.
The Constitution bars members of Parliament from acquiring foreign nationality. Documents that Malik had submitted to the court failed to convince judges that he had renounced his dual nationality before being elected.
Malik, however, was re-elected unopposed as a senator from Sindh on July 23 after the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) decided to again put up his name for a seat in the upper legislative house.
