PTI challenges LHC's ruling on Punjab CM election in SC

Islamabad, July 1 (UNI) The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) has challenged the Lahore High Court's (LHC) decision in the Supreme Court on Friday regarding the election of Pakistan Musltim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz as Punjab’s chief minister, Express Tribune reported.
Deputy speaker of the Punjab Assembly Sardar Dost Muhammad Mazari, Hamza Shehbaz, and others have been made parties in the petition filed in the apex court.
In its appeal, the PTI has stated that while the LHC had accepted the party’s position, the order to convene a meeting of the provincial assembly on short notice would prove detrimental, terming the LHC’s decision "unconstitutional", stating a suitable timeframe must be provided to convene a meeting of the assembly so that all members may attend as votes are to be recounted on Friday.
