The Supreme Court annulled the lifetime disqualification of former PTI leader Faisal Vawda as a lawmaker and declared him eligible to contest the next general elections after he apologised in court on Friday.

A three-member SC bench — headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah and Justice Ayesha Malik — heard the plea against Vawda’s lifelong disqualification ruling of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), issued on February 9.
