Against Chief Justice Moved by Pakistani Assembly Due To “Concessions” To Imran Khan. Differences between the senior members of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) administration and the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) have reportedly reached an impasse.
Islamabad: According to Pakistan-based ARY News, the National Assembly of Pakistan on Monday approved a motion calling for the creation of a committee to bring a case against Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Ata Bandial.
The motion was brought up during the session after the house’s regular business was suspended, according to (ARY News).
In his previous Monday speech to the house, Pakistani Defence Minister Khawaja Asif stressed the need for the parliament to send a clear message to protect its territory.
Raja Riaz, the leader of the opposition, vehemently denounced the recent violent incidents in the nation in his statements.
Those who assaulted the Corps Commander House in Lahore, according to him, are state enemies.
Riaz held trained PTI members accountable for these heinous crimes. According to ARY News, he emphasised the need of demonstrating unwavering support for Pakistan’s military services.
According to Salahuddin of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement in Pakistan, the latest violent activities are inexcusable. He said that PTI Chairman Imran Khan, under whose direction both public and private properties were looted, is receiving “concessions” from the judiciary.
Differences between the senior members of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) administration and the Supreme Court of Pakistan (SCP) have reportedly reached an impasse.
The Express Tribune claimed that despite opposition from the government, the bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Umar Ata Bandial is determined on holding provincial elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
There are obvious differences of opinion among the SCP judges on the subject, as some are opposed to the apex court’s “suo moto” powers in this case, which are alleged to have been arbitrarily exercised by CJP Bandial and have reportedly asked for a larger bench to address the country’s ongoing political unrest, according to Arab News.
The Shehbaz Sharif-led administration, on the other hand, has the support of Pakistan’s formidable military establishment, which recently warned the Chief Justice of Pakistan and other justices that the country’s security situation makes it impossible to hold elections in the two provinces.
