    They are planning on resorting to a temporary judge policy what they will do is make neutral lawyers judges and help solve cases at lightening speed and I think alot of the cases will be dropped due to no turnout from either of the parties.

    Soon there will be another facet to Pakistan's struggle to survive, Mr. Nawaz Sharif as civilian dictator -- see below for prepartions




    SC can review 17th Amendment, says Chaudhry

    * CJP says courts have jurisdiction to interpret laws, constitution
    * Says protection for 17th Amend under Article 270-AA can also be reviewed

    Staff Report

    ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Monday observed that the Supreme Court is completely empowered to examine or review the 17th Amendment – which is protected under Article 270-AA of the Constitution – if the need arises.

    Heading a three-member bench consisting of Justice Raja Fayyaz and Justice Chaudhry Ejaz — the chief justice made the observation while dismissing an appeal filed by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) seeking to cancel the allotment of a plot to an employee.

    Afnan Kundi – representing the CDA – said the authority had cancelled the allotment of a plot to employee Bashir Hussain under CDA rules, as he did not build a house within the required period. He said a city district court as well as high court had decided the case in favour of the employee, although “courts are not empowered to interfere in such matters”.

    Jurisdiction: However, the chief justice said courts were completely empowered to review laws based on mala fide intention. He said courts also had ‘absolute jurisdiction’ to interpret laws and the constitution.

    270-AA: “If needed, the Supreme Court can review Article 270-AA of the Constitution under which the 17th Amendment is protected,” observed Iftikhar. Article 270-AA protects the October 12,1999, military coup. According to its language, the article cannot be called into question in any court or forum of the country on any ground whatsoever. Various political parties have been calling for the 17th Amendment to be withdrawn, and several have also framed drafts for this purpose.

    Pay rises will help straighten those that were about to go on the wrong path but not help everyone plus we need to outsmart the rich not outspend them.

    All will fail. The whole system no matter how sincere CJ is full of fallacies thats why its crumbling and its bound to fall. This system was shrewdly designed by BRITISH to keep check on there slaves. Dont take me as pessimist, I am very optimist about what will happen after the inevitable fall. To build a new 'structure' the old one gets demolished first.

    If it happens so it would univversal record for sure. and lots of other countries would follow it. And it would be great, bcoz in current condition due to delay in hearing lots of case's keep going on for year's. Some time you can get the result and some some time you dont.

    Yes I am sure but on the basis of what will your new structure be built???

    Completely wrong an idea is it to say that the system has failed only the people have it is us who are to blam the British left us with the same system as they had, Quaid-e-Azam had warned us about land lords and mentioned that we need to get rid of the Jagirdari setup in our country not the system.

    The new system will be on JUSTICE & THE SOCIAL JUSTICE Values our QURAN lays down. And above all fueled by 'FAITH,UNITY & DISCIPLINE'. Manned by people who just work, not ideas rollers or conspiracy theorists or forum trolls.:flame:
