Pakistan’s Supreme Court has disqualified deposed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for life from holding any public office.

In a landmark judgement today, a five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Saqib Nisar ruled that disqualification handed down under Article 62 (1)(f) of the Constitution is for life and such a person cannot contest elections or become a member of parliament.

Following the verdict, both former Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader, Jahangir Tareen have become ineligible to ever hold public office.

Supreme Court disqualified Nawaz Sharif in July last year in the Panama Papers case.

Earlier, in February, the bench had reserved the judgement on 17 appeals and petitions challenging the length of disqualification under Article 62(1)(f) for possessing fake degrees.
