Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has challenged the decision to postpone the Punjab Assembly elections in the Supreme Court.
The registrar’s office did not object to the application, and the main trial will be held next week.
PTI leader Asad Umar had filed a petition in the Supreme Court.
It should be noted that the Election Commission has postponed the elections in Punjab till October 8, while the Supreme Court had ordered to hold elections within 90 days after the dissolution of the assembly.
A petition related to the Punjab elections has been filed in the Supreme Court. Syed Zafar Ali Shah, the former defected leader of the PML-N, requested the Election Commission to annul the date of the elections and requested that action be taken against the Prime Minister and the Chief Election Commissioner in the petition.
In the petition, it was said that the notification is against the law and in violation of the constitution, Article 6 action should be taken against Fazlur Rehman, Ranasthna and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Mohsen Naqvi should be disqualified.
He further said that the Chief Election Commissioner should be removed by the order of the Election Commission and the Election Commission should be ordered to conduct the election as per the schedule of April 30.
Earlier, Asad Umar, along with Fawad Chaudhry, gave a strong reaction to the Election Commission’s postponement of the Punjab Assembly election during a press conference in Lahore and said that the action of the Election Commission is a violation of the Constitution, the decision of the Constitution and the decision of the Supreme Court. It contradicts and also contradicts the Election Commission’s own position.
Asad Umar said that the decision will be challenged because it is not the authority of the Election Commission to give the date of the elections. Ali Zafar is preparing the application.
