CJP takes sou motu notice of constitutional crisis in country

Islamabad -The Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial on Sunday took a sou motu notice of the political situation in the country.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial reached the top court after President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly. The development comes after the Opposition leaders demanded to review the “ unconstitutional” ruling given by National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri.
According to reports, the judicial staff also arrived at the Supreme Court.
The common Opposition has also prepared a solicitation to cancel the ruling of the deputy speakers under which the National Assembly session was suspended for an indefinite period as Suri cancelled the voting on the no- confidence stir, nominating it “ unconstitutional”.
According to the solicitation prepared by the common Opposition, the speaker should be directed to convene the session moment as “ the deputy speaker can not recess the session as it’s unconstitutional.”
Likewise, the Opposition has filed a solicitation against President Arif Alvi, PM Imran Khan, Speaker NA Asad Qaiser and Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri for violating the Constitution.
Sources privy to the matter said that a special bench of the top court will hear the case.
Meanwhile, former civil minister for information Fawad Chaudhry said that decision of the speaker is “ final and can not be challenged in any court.”

“ The power of speaker in this regard is unlimited,” he said while talking to intelligencers.
The former minister said that the deputy speaker has taken the decision dauntlessly, adding that although “ we have lost out government, we’re still celebrating and they (the Opposition) are crying.”
