Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Khalid Khursheed has been disqualified on the basis of fake degree.

Earlier today, a no-confidence motion was submitted against Gilgit-Baltistan Chief Minister Khalid Khursheed, but before the voting the Gilgit-Baltistan court disqualified him.

The verdict was announced by the Chief Court Gilgit Baltistan.

Nine opposition members submitted a no-confidence motion against Khursheed in the Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly Secretariat.

PPP’s Abdul Hameed and PML-N’s Rana Farman Ali, who contested against Khalid Khursheed, had challenged Khalid Khursheed’s degree in the Election Commission, on which the Chief Election Commissioner issued a notice to the Chief Minister.

The Chief Minister’s degree was from London but was not certified by the University of London.

Chief Minister Khalid Khursheed was sworn in as Chief Minister on December 1, 2020.
