LAHORE: The High Court in Lahore will on Monday hear a petition seeking Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's disqualification from his post.
 
The appeal claims that Khan had concealed the alleged parentage of a daughter with a former partner in his nomination papers for the 2018 election, Dawn news reported.
 
The appellant is Tyrian White, daughter of Khan's former partner, Ana-Luisa (Sita) White. There are allegations that Tyrian is Khan's daughter, a claim which he has denied.
 
"Imran Khan did not mention White as one of his dependants in his nomination papers, and thus he does not measure up to Article 62 and 63 of the Constitution," the petition read. 
 
Articles 62 and 63, set the precondition for a member of parliament to be "sadiq and ameen" (honest and righteous).
