The Sindh High Court election tribunal has dismissed the petition challenging the Senate nominal of Federal Water Resources Minister Faisal Vawda.
The tribunal has declared him eligible to contest the upcoming Senate elections.
On February 20, Advocate Qadir Khan Mandokhail challenged the returning officer’s decision to approve Vawda’s nomination papers.

He added that when these reservations were taken to the returning officers, he rejected them. “The officer’s actions were illegal and unconstitutional.
