ISLAMABAD: Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday adjourned the hearing of the suo moto case on the prevailing political situation till Tuesday noon.
A five-member bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial was hearing the case.
The apex court had taken notice of the political turmoil after President Arif Alvi dissolved the national assembly (NA) on Sunday on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
During the hearing, the Supreme Court had earlier rejected a request to suspend the NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s ruling regarding the no-confidence motion. However, CJP had remarked that a reasonable order would be issued.
The apex court rejected a plea by Farooq H Naek, who is representing the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and other opposition parties, to form a full-court bench to hear the matter.
