Election Tribunals Case; Objection to the inclusion of the Chief Justice in the larger bench rejected

Court reporter Dawn TV + Daily Dawn

ISLAMABAD: PTI’s lawyer has objected to the inclusion of the Chief Justice in the larger bench of the Supreme Court hearing the Election Tribunals case.

A five-member larger bench headed by the Chief Justice heard the appeal of the Election Commission against the formation of election tribunals on behalf of the Lahore High Court.

Salman Akram Raja’s lawyer Hamid Khan filed an adjournment application, while Tehreek-e-Insaf’s lawyer Niazullah Niazi objected to the inclusion of the Chief Justice in the bench, saying that my client objects that the Chief Justice should not be a part of the bench.

Rejecting the objection, the Chief Justice said that this bench would hear.

The Chief Justice said that your objection has been heard, stay here, this is a matter between the Election Commission and the Chief Justice, why is a private person so interested in this matter?

The Chief Justice told Salman Akram Raja that we had asked you at the first hearing if there was any objection. Did you object to us? Then you replied that we have no objection.

Salman Akram Raja replied that even today I have no objection to the Chief Justice.

The Chief Justice asked the lawyer of the Election Commission, how many tribunals do you need?

The Vakil Election Commission replied that we need 9 judges, we have no objection to consultation, but there should be a difference and balance between dictation and consultation.

Justice Aqeel Abbasi asked what is meant by balance, that is, two should be of the will of the Election Commission and two should be of the will of the High Court.

Justice Jamal Khan Mandukhel directed that you check the name from the website of the Lahore High Court.
