PTI challenges LHC ruling on election of CM Punjab to SC

On Friday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party lodged an appeal against the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to conduct a vote recount in the chief minister (CM) election that took place in the Punjab Assembly.

According to the facts, the PTI has lodged an appeal against the decision made by the LHC concerning the elections for the Chief Minister (CM) of Punjab. The PTI contends that the order to conduct the election within 24 hours would undermine the relief that the court has granted.

The PTI’s argument acknowledges that the LHC judgment alleviated their worries and verified their concerns, but it argues that the directive to convene the session within the next twenty-four hours will be detrimental to them.

According to the PTI’s petition, the Supreme Court ought to grant the petition that was filed against the LHC and reschedule the PA session at a later time. According to the statement, six of the PTI’s MPAs are now performing the Hajj in Saudi Arabia, while others are leaving the country for a variety of other reasons.

The party said that free and fair elections can only be held if Hamza Shehbaz is ousted from office, hence they made the demand to have his notification as chief minister revoked.

Fawad Chaudhry, a leader in the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and a former minister of information, made the announcement on Thursday that the PTI will challenge the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC) to remove Hamza Shahbaz as Chief Minister of Punjab before the Supreme Court due to anomalies.
