Dar’s appointment as deputy PM challenged


ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf MNA Sher Afzal Khan Marwat has challenged the appointment of Foreign Minister Ishaq Dar as the deputy prime minister in the Islamabad High Court.

In a petition, Marwat prayed the court to set aside the notification appointing Dar as the deputy PM by declaring it as without lawful authority.

The petitioner made government of Pakistan, the secretary of cabinet division, prime minister and deputy prime minister as respondents.

Earlier, a citizen also filed a petition in the IHC for nullifying the notification of appointing Dar as the deputy prime minister.
