LAHORE: Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Minister Shazia Marri has asked the Supreme Court (SC) to form a larger bench to hear the case pertaining to Deputy Speaker Dost Mazari’s ruling in the Punjab chief minister’s election on July 17.
The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Saturday ruled that Chief Minister Punjab Hamza Shahbaz would work as a trustee till Monday (July 25). The orders came during a hearing on PML-Q leader Pervez Elahi’s petition against Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Mazari’s ruling in the provincial CM’s election held on Friday.
The PPP leader while addressing the media in Lahore, maintained that a full bench of top court judges will be able to shed more wisdom on the matter than only three judges whose opinion might differ from each other and prolong the political crisis.
“The previous interpretation of Article 63 A had made everything clear but still matters are being dragged.”
Hurling allegations at the former PM Imran Khan, Shazia Marri said “This man has destroyed the political culture of the country, we will respond to the PTI chairman in his language now.”
The PPP leader warned the PTI chairman that coalition government parties can also stoop down to his level when it comes to verbal altercations.
