SC dismisses plea for continuation of trial against Musharraf
ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned hearing of the case regarding election of Karachi Mayor and Deputy Mayor till April 4.

The three-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali and comprising Justice Iqbal Hameedur Rehman and Justice Sardar Tariq Masood heard the case and observed that it was an important case and the court would hear this case on daily basis from the next week.

During the course of proceedings, counsel for the Sindh government Farooq H Naek apprised the court that the Sindh High Court (SHC) had suspended the amended Sindh Local Government Act 2016 while hearing two different petitions. Now no law existed in the province to hold local government elections, he added.

He said that the SHC had also suspended those articles which were not asked by the petitioners, such as increase in reserved seats for women from 22 to 33 and a reserved seat for the youth.

Naek said the high court in its decision had suspended the increased women seats and the youth seat. Without the nomination of youth and women members, how the election of mayor and deputy mayor could be held, he asked.

On a court’s query, Naek said before the introduction of new law Sindh Local Government Act 2013 existed in the province. He pleaded the court to suspend the SHC verdict. –APP
