Only Full Court Can End Constitutional Crisis – Bilawal Bhutto

Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who is also the chairman of Pakistan People Party (PPP), on Tuesday urged the Supreme Court of Pakistan to form a full court and remove “two judges” from the bench on the matter of postponement of Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa polls to pull the country out of constitutional crisis.

Accodrding to statement of Bilawal comes after Supreme Court’s three-member bench nullified the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to postpone polls in Punjab.

The three-member bench led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Munib Akhtar had announced the verdict earlier today on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) petition challenging the ECP’s move to postpone Punjab Assembly polls till October.

The apex court announced that general elections of the Punjab Assembly would be held on May 14 as it declared the ECP’s decision “unconstitutional”.
