Cheif Justice of Pakistan says case of Punjab CM Election will be announced at 5:45pm

ISLAMABAD: Cheif Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial announced on Tuesday that the court would render a decision in the Punjab chief minister election case at 5:45 p.m. today.

PPP and Dost Mazari’s attorneys inform the court that they will not participate in the proceedings surrounding the Punjab chief minister election.

After the petitioner’s arguments were finished, the CJP made this statement.

On Saturday, the PML-Q filed a petition in opposition to the decision of Punjab Deputy Speaker Dost Mazari, which allowed Hamza Shahbaz to keep his position as the province’s chief minister.

The case was heard by the three-judge panel of the supreme court, which was led by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and included Justice Ahsan and Justice Munib Akhtar.

The constitution’s Article 63(A) clearly states that the parliamentary party gives directions to the lawmakers, and the formation of a full court is nothing more than “delaying the case,” according to CJP Bandial, who opened today’s hearing.

“Judges are on leave, so the formation of a full court and subsequent hearing of the case could have been postponed until September.”
