The coalition government has filed a plea requesting the reconstitution of the bench that will preside over the case involving the delay of elections.
The government led by Shehbaz Sharif has filed a new plea in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, seeking the reconstitution of the bench hearing the election delay case without the judges who heard the election suo motu notice. The Attorney General for Pakistan filed a miscellaneous plea ahead of the scheduled hearing of the suo motu and the PTI petition challenging the Election Commission of Pakistan's order to postpone the Punjab election to October 8. A three-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial, and comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Ijaz ul Ahsan is set to resume the hearing. During the previous hearing, the request of the Attorney General of Pakistan to form a full court was rejected by the Supreme Court. The petition has requested the Supreme Court to dismiss the election delay case in view of the majority (4-3) order/judgment of March 01. The PDM is likely to boycott the court hearing, while lawyers have expressed solidarity with the Chief Justice. The Islamabad police have limited entry to the court.
