On Monday, the Supreme Court decided that it would need more clarity to reach a final decision regarding whether to form a full court bench or not.
The Supreme Court continued the hearing on Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi’s petition against Dost Mazari’s ruling which discarded 10 votes of PML-Q and awarded Hamza Shehbaz the position of chief minister Punjab.
Chief Justice (CJ) Umar Ata Bandial remarked that certain pointers needed to be more clear to make a final decision about the full court bench.
According to Justice Ijaz-Ul-Ahsan, a member of the bench, the case of a controversial ruling by a deputy speaker has to be heard on merit, and only then they could decide to form the full court bench.
Chief Justice pointed out that in the past a full bench has been formed but for an utmost important and complicated issue. Justice Bandial further added that the primary point in front of the court was whether or not the head of the party could direct parliamentary members.
