Lahore: Senior lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan said on Thursday that no political party can be dissolved over receiving illegal funds even from Israel, a state that is not recognized by Pakistan. Sharing her expert views on GNN’s show ‘Khabar Hai’ the senior leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) said that Supreme Court of Pakistan under Article 17 can dissolve a party, which is working as a foreign agent or has been set up by foreign powers.

He classified the foreign funds in two categories: one which are sent by persons of Pakistani-origin, and other are sent by a foreign national.

Ahsan said that a man of Pakistani-origin under Election Act 2017 can provide fund to a political part and no one can question it.
