Islamabad: The coalition government has decided to introduce a resolution in the National Assembly on Thursday against the recent decision made by the Supreme Court in the case involving the delay of elections.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif addressed a meeting of the coalition parties’ leadership in Islamabad on Wednesday, where he expressed his concerns about the violation of the country’s Constitution and law.
He made these remarks a day after the Supreme Court’s three-judge bench ruled that the Election Commission of Pakistan’s decision to postpone polls in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was unconstitutional.
The bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and comprised of Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan, was criticized by the Prime Minister for ignoring a previous bench’s decision and allowing members who had recused themselves to participate in the proceedings.
Shehbaz Sharif urged all MNAs to attend the session, which will discuss the top court’s verdict.
He also mentioned that detailed meetings were held last week on this matter – two in the cabinet and one in parliament. He stated that the treatment of the Constitution and law in this case has never been seen before.
