PTI & PML-Q to move Supreme Court against LHC’s decision

LAHORE, Pakistan: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) have decided to approach the Supreme Court of Pakistan against the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) judgement, ordering the re-counting of votes for the election of Punjab’s Chief Minister.


Earlier in the day, a five-member bench of the LHC instructed that votes in the election held on April 16 to elect the Chief Minister be recounted on July 1, 2022 after excluding 25 votes of the PTI defecting lawmakers.

Sources said that the Speaker Punjab Assembly Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi held a consultation with a legal team headed by Ali Zafar Advocate.

It was told in the meeting that five PTI lawmakers are in Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage and six are also abroad for necessary work while five members have not yet been notified by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) despite the decision of the High Court.

In addition, many constitutional and legal ambiguities exist in today’s verdict announced by the LHC.

It was decided in the meeting that legal points will be placed before the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

In the consultation, apart from Ali Zafar Advocate, Moonis Elahi, Raja Basharat, Samsam Bukhari, Ghazanfar Abbas Cheena, Hussain Jahanian Gardezi, Hafiz Ammar Yasir and other lawyers were present.
