ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court (SC) will hear on June 6 the petitions filed against ruling of National Assembly Speaker regarding the disqualification of Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani in the wake of conviction over contempt of court charge, SAMAA reports Saturday.
A three-member bench of the apex court will hear the petitions on June 6 (Wednesday). Justice Jawwad S. Khwaja and Justice Khilji Arif Hussain are the other judges on the bench.
It should be mentioned here that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Khwaja Asif and Zafar Ali Shah submitted the petitions against the ruling of the NA Speaker.
The petitions are of the view that ruling by the NA speaker Dr. Fahmida Mirza is quite unwarranted after the court’s sentence to the PM Gilani; hence, the speaker’s ruling should be annulled. SAMAA
