According to News, the three-member bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Omar Ata Bandial, will hear a case related to holding simultaneous elections in the country today. Justice Manib Al-Rahman and Justice Ajaz Ul Ahsan are also part of the bench.
The hearing of the case will begin at 11:00 am. The federal government has submitted its response in the Supreme Court regarding the Attorney General’s identification, stating that the government is ready to restart negotiations with the opposition regarding holding general elections in the country.
Negotiations have been initiated, but no agreement has been reached on the date of analysis of the national and other provincial assemblies.
Earlier, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had submitted a report on the progress made in the negotiations with the government in the Supreme Court, after which the hearing of the case was scheduled for 11:00 am on Friday. The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Attorney General and other parties.
It should be noted that the Supreme Court has already ordered elections to be held in Punjab on May 14, after which the Ministry of Interior had filed a request for holding simultaneous elections in the country, and several hearings have already been held on this matter, in which both the opposition and the government, including its allied parties, have taken part.
