On Friday, the Supreme Court accepted Faisal Vawda’s unconditional apologies in court and reversed the lifelong disqualification that had been placed on the former PTI leader.

An appeal against Faisal Vawda’s permanent disqualification was considered by a three-judge bench presided over by Pakistan’s chief justice, Umar Ata Bandial.

Faisal Vawda had been called to court by the chief judge so that he could apologise and admit his fault.

The former federal minister said he accepts full responsibility for his actions and is sorry to the court in advance for any penalty that may be imposed.

The court accepted Faisal Vawda’s explanation and found that he should have been disqualified under Article 62(1)(f) rather than Article 63(1)(c). The court invalidated his present term of office based on Article 63(1)(c).

In February 2022, ex-Federal minister Faisal Vawda, who had been permanently prohibited from being a lawmaker by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), petitioned the Supreme Court to reverse the ECP’s February 9 ruling.
