Govt decides to submit review petition against Supreme Court decision

According to reports, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to file a review case against the decision of the Supreme Court against the Deputy Speaker. 

According to reliable sources, Prime Minister Imran Khan has completed his consultations with legal experts on the subject at hand.

According to sources, the Supreme Court will be argued in the petition that Article 69 is a component of the constitution and that the Supreme Court could not take away the powers of the assembly without the legislature’s consent.

According to sources, the government will ask for the suspension of the five-member bench’s decision and for the National Assembly to be allowed to function in accordance with the rules of procedure.

Prime Minister Imran Khan today presided over a meeting of senior party leaders and legal experts ahead of a National Assembly session in which a no-confidence motion will be debated and voted upon.

Following the Supreme Court’s judgment, the meeting discussed the best course of action.

Later on, Speaker of the National Assembly Asad Qaiser spoke with Prime Minister Imran Khan on the phone to discuss the strategy for the vote on the no-confidence motion.

Earlier in the day, the National Assembly secretariat informed the speaker that failing to comply with the Supreme Court’s order to hold a vote on the no-trust motion would result in contempt of court proceedings being started against him.

According to reliable sources, secretariat officials have communicated that implementation of the Supreme Court’s ruling is an inevitable need.

It was stated that “we have indicated to the speaker that there is no alternative to vote on the no-trust motion today,” and that “if there is no voting, it will be tantamount to contempt of court.”

According to the Supreme Court’s announcement, the suo motu case was illegal and the decision of the National Assembly deputy speaker was ‘unconstitutional.’

The opposition’s no-trust motion against Prime Minister Khan was upheld by the Supreme Court in a landmark decision. The Supreme Court found that the deputy speaker’s decision was a violation of the Constitution, and the dissolution of the National Assembly was declared null and void by the court.

The Supreme Court issued orders directing that the vote on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan be completed as soon as possible. It has been decided that the speaker of the National Assembly will not be able to adjourn the session for an unlimited amount of time.
