LAHORE- The Lahore High Court (LHC) today accepted a

petition seeking ban on Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) for hearing.

The petition was filed by Gohar Nawaz Sandhu of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). It was stated that PML-N, PPP and JUI-F have violated Political Parties Act by not holding intra-party polls.

The petitioner has pleaded the court to not allow the parties to contest the general elections till they hold elections within their own parties.

Earlier, the LHC had removed the objections filed by the LHC Office and accepted the petition for hearing.
