Election Tribunal Judge Wamiq Javed was hearing an appeal filed by former MNA Malik Shakeel Awan seeking disqualification of Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rashid, who won the NA-55 seat in the general election-2013.

Abdul Rashid Awan and Sardar Abdul Razzak, counsel for the AML chief were present in the tribunal. Malik Shakeel Awan had filed a petition with the Rawalpindi Election Tribunal seeking disqualification of Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on rigging charges in the general election.
