Pakistan: Ruling coalition wants full SC bench to hear case of Punjab CM election

Pakistan: Ruling coalition wants full SC bench to hear case of Punjab CM election

Islamabad, July 24 (UNI) Pakistan's ruling coalition has “strongly urged” the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial to form a full bench to preside over petitions filed regarding the contentious Punjab chief minister’s election that saw Hamza Shehbaz retaining the office on a technical ground, Express Tribune reported on Sunday.
“It will only be fair for all respected SC judges to hear Supreme Court Bar Association’s (SCBA) review request, the present petition and other related applications together,” it said, noting that “these are very important national, political and constitutional matters” the coalition said.
Referring to the SC’s ruling on Article 63A, the coalition parties stressed that the cost of the resulting political instability was being borne by the country's economy teetering on the brink of bankruptcy “as well as by the people in the shape of inflation, unemployment and poverty”.
Lambasting Imran Khan, they said, “Imran Khan is repeatedly creating chaos in politics with the aim of avoiding accountability, hiding his corruption and gaining power by stealth”.
They reiterated their commitment to the aforementioned three tenets, and said that there would be “no compromise” on the matter. Furthermore, the parties said that they would “proceed together” in a joint effort to “fight the darkness of fascism”.
