Additional Attorney General Tariq Khokhar hd earlier concluded arguments. He represented federal government. 
He had pleaded the court to thoroughly observe the case details because the Parliament was discussing the matter.
Barrister Zafarullah objected. He said that the courts should give a verdict instead of delaying the matter if the case is related to the fundamental rights.
Justice Mohsin Akhtar Kayani remarked, “Can a court issue an order to the parliament?”
The counsel replied that the court could not issue directives to the parliament but the ordinance can be challenged.
PMDC employees had challenged the presidential ordinance that dissolved the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC).
The bench had sought replies from Secretary to the President, secretaries of the Ministry of Law and the Cabinet Division.
