The Islamabad High Court rejected Imran Khan’s appeal against being disqualified in the Toshakhana reference case. The reference alleged that Imran did not share details about the gifts he received from Toshakhana. The Toshakhana is a department that stores gifts given to rulers and government officials by foreign dignitaries. The Election Commission of Pakistan concluded that Imran had made false statements regarding the gifts and was thus disqualified. Imran had approached the IHC against the electoral body’s decision, but later filed a fresh plea to withdraw the petition. The reference against Imran was filed by the Pakistan Democratic Movement, and lawmakers provided evidence to support their claims and seek his disqualification. Article 62(1)(f) and Article 63(2) and (3) of the Constitution were cited in the disqualification reference. Imran had admitted to selling at least four presents he received during his time as the prime minister.
