KP, Punjab polls: President can announce poll date, says CJP

— The lead representative and the president’s job are discussed in the reconstituted SC seat following the separation of four appointed authorities in ISLAMABAD: Monday, Boss Equity Umar Ata Bandial stated that the Races Act of 2017 clearly states that the president can set the survey date.

President Arif Alvi recently announced that decisions would be made in April, drawing solid analysis from the public authority, after concluding that the lead representatives from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa KP and Punjab, Haji Ghulam Ali and Baligh Ur Rehman, and the Political race Commission of Pakistan (ECP) were not fulfilling their protected obligations to declare the date for surveys in the two regions.

In the meantime, the CJP made remarks during the suo motu hearing regarding the decisions in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. There are now only five people in the seat, which had nine people in the past.

After Equity Ijaz Ul Ahsan, Equity Sayyed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi, Equity Athar Minallah, and Equity Yahya Afridi withdrew from hearing the case, the seat was reconstituted.

The case discovery was scheduled to begin today at 11 a.m., but it was postponed allegedly due to seat development in light of a High Court request for the February 23 hearing.

On the SC’s website, a written request was posted with Equity Afridi, Equity Minallah, Equity Jamal Khan Mandokhail, and Equity Syed Mansoor Ali Shah’s opposing notes.

Following this, the current hearing was managed by a five-member seat led by Boss Equity Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Equity Munib Akhtar, Equity Muhammad Ali Mazhar, Equity Shah, and Equity Mandokhail.

The newly formed seat, where Lawyer Ali Zafar concluded his arguments with the guidance of speakers from the two regions, closed the case’s knowledge until Tuesday morning at 9:30.

Amazingly, the High Court continued suo motu procedures regarding the late reporting of political race dates for Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, with a reduced seat of five judges instead of the usual nine.

The seat used to have nine judges, but it was rebuilt and now has five judges because Equity Mansoor Ali Shah, Equity Yahya Afridi, Equity Jamal Khan Mandokhail, and Equity Athar Minallah have left the board.

Even though the scheduled times of 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. were postponed twice, the seat continued with its hearing.

Equity Bandial, Equity Ahsan, Equity Akhtar, Equity Naqvi, and Equity Mazhar requested that the case be heard on the three questions outlined by the central equity in the underlying notification in accordance with a court order.

The majority of the request has also demonstrated that Equity Minallah’s concerns about the legality of dissolving the Punjab and KP parliaments in order to obtain transcription from a particular party pioneer—in this case, former state head Imran Khan—can be examined at a reasonable stage while keeping in mind the seriousness of the situation.

In the meantime, the remaining four appointed authorities have demanded the seat be reconfigured for a variety of reasons in a contradictory note.

Individuals from the alliance Pakistan Popularity based Development (PDM) gave a note to the summit court at the previous hearing, mentioning that Equity Ahsan and Equity Naqvi, two judges, have recused themselves from the case.

Equity Bandial stated at the conference on Monday that while four members of the seat disassociated themselves from the procedures, the remaining seat would continue to hear the case regarding the understanding of the Constitution.

He added that the court will attempt to conclude the conference on Tuesday.

Additionally, the appointed authority expressed concern regarding the late arrival of a note from one of the appointed authorities and promised to take preventative measures.

Attorney Ali Zafar told the court about the Punjab lead representative’s request for names from the two players regarding the overseer boss pastor during the consultation. Nevertheless, the main clergyman’s name was chosen by the Political Race Commission of Pakistan (ECP) due to a conflict.

The lead representative kept in touch with the ECP, but he didn’t say when the political decision would be made because he hadn’t broken up the group. Equity Mazhar emphasized that the lead representative was the one who had “tossed the matter” to the commission’s court and inquired about who chooses the lead representative.
