The Islamabad High Court has restored a 10-year disqualification for convicts charged under the National Accountability Ordinance (NAO), overturning its earlier ruling limiting the disqualification to five years. This decision came after an appeal filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) against the disqualification of former Balochistan minister Mir Faiq Ali Jamali. Jamali had been sentenced to 14 years in prison with a fine over corruption charges, and was released in October 2013. The Supreme Court had also barred Jamali from contesting elections till 2026.

The case was filed by the former minister to seek clearance to contest the elections. Last year, Jamali joined the PPP, but later joined the PML-N along with other electables. The matter is still ongoing, and more updates are expected.
