Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder Imran Khan is out of the election race as the Lahore High Court (LHC) has turned down his appeal against nomination papers’ rejection for the February 8 elections.

The high court on Wednesday upheld the decisions of the appellate tribunal against acceptance of the former premier’s nomination papers from NA-122 and NA-89 constituencies.

A three-member bench headed by Justice Ali Baqar Najafi heard the plea in which Khan claimed that his nomination papers were rejected by the RO and appellate tribunal without looking at the facts.

However, the LHC bench rejected the incarcerated former prime minister’s appeal and upheld the previous decisions.

The court also conducted hearings on multiple pleas filed by other PTI leaders to challenge the rejection of their papers.

A larger bench of the LHC dismissed the appeals filed by PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Hammad Azhar, Latif Khosa’s son Khurram Latif Khosa and PTI activist Sanam Javaid.
