All people will accept judgement if full court is formed: Shehbaz


ISLAMABAD (PPI): Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated on Thursday that the government would accept the Supreme Court of Pakistan’s full bench verdict in the election dispute in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Speaking during the laying of the foundation stone for the Islamabad Attorneys Complex on Thursday, he stated that judges who recused themselves should not be appointed to that court.
The Prime Minister recalled that Justice Munir established the doctrine of necessity which created troubles for Pakistan. He said they respect the Supreme Court of Pakistan and its justices, and their decisions should apply to everyone.
Talking about proceedings of the Supreme Court in the case for elections, he mentioned that a nine member bench was formed which was later shortened to three members as some judges recused.
In the same case, political parties were not made part of the proceedings despite requests, he noted.
Shehbaz Sharif said if the demand for a full bench of the Supreme Court was accepted in the case for elections in Punjab ad Khyber Pakhtunkhwa then everybody would have accepted the decision.
He said the decision of Supreme Court Justice Qazi Faez Esa was invalidated through a circular in a case then a six member larger bench was formed for the same case. Article 63A of the constitution was rewritten and the appeal filed by the government in the Supreme Court was still not heard, he continued.
He said no political party could evade elections as it would bury its politics. He said a court verdict was given that a prime minister was nothing without his federal cabinet but this principle was not applied on others.
He said all the stakeholders should look at their conduct and decide whether they wanted to protect future of coming generations or they wanted to indulge in fights for their personal interests and take Pakistan in a direction from which nobody could come back. “We have to protect the future of Pakistan which is faced with many challenges. We should take decision with a cool head and stay united for the interest of Pakistan.”
Shahbaz Sharif said that no political party is running away from elections, the party that does so will have its politics buried.
While expressing happiness at the construction of Lawyers Complex, he said the project would be built at a cost of Rs 1.8 billion.
The Prime Minister has said that lawyers struggled hard. He said that no one has given this position to lawyers on a plate.
