CJP says precondition for a parliamentarian to be ‘sadiq and ameen’ is ‘draconian law’

Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial remarked that Article 62(1)(f) of the Constitution, which sets the precondition for a member of parliament to be “sadiq and ameen” — honest and righteous — was a “draconian law”. The CJP made the remarks as the Supreme Court heard PTI leader Faisal Vawda’s appeal against his disqualification for life, under the article.
