    ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, during a hearing on the Elections Act 2017, remarked that anyone criticising the courts is also disobeying the Constitution.

    He referred to Article 5 of the Constitution that loyalty of state means loyalty of judiciary.

    SC admits petitions against Elections Act, issues notices to Nawaz, others

    The chief justice while hearing petitions against the Elections Act, said that they will not react over criticisim as the people of Pakistan are the best judge and see everything.

    Another judge Justice Ijazul Ahsan, said that attacking the Constitution institution is also falls under the purview of Article 5 of the Constitution.

    Latif Khosa, counsel for the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) wondered why the judiciary is showing restraint on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s speeches against judges.

    “I think you don’t know about wisdom,” the CJP told him.

    The CJP also asked Additional Attorney General Pakistan (AAGP) Waqar Rana to submit complete debate on Election Act.

    Disqualified person can head party, rules NA

    On January 1, the Supreme Court declared maintainable the petitions challenging the Elections Act, 2017, a part of which paved the way for Sharif to head the ruling party despite his disqualification as a parliament member.

    After hearing preliminary arguments from petitioners, a three-judge bench of the apex court, headed by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar and comprising Justice Faisal Arab and Justice Ijazul Ahsan, issued notices to Sharif, the PML-N and secretaries of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), National Assembly and Senate.
