ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) on Thursday filed a petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan to intervene in order to avoid a possible clash between political parties over a no-trust move against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The SCBA in its constitutional petition said that it was aimed at ensuring that the process of the no-trust move is completed in a peaceful manner. “No-trust motion is a constitutional way under article 95 to remove a prime minister,” it read.
The representative body of the lawyers said that there is a chance of a clash between the two sides on the day of voting on the no-trust move owing to their inflammatory statements.
It is pertinent to mention here that a petition has been filed in Islamabad High Court (IHC), seeking prohibition of holding a public rally at the Red Zone of the federal capital.
Petitioner Chaudhry Asif Gujjar Advocate has made the federation and other parties in the petition. The petitioner seeks the court order over the matter as per the law.
Blocking the road in Red Zone could create security issues, according to the petition.
It is notable that both the Opposition and the federal government led by PTI have announced massive rallies in the federal capital ahead of voting on a no-trust motion against PM Imran Khan.
