Opposition parties move PHC

Opposition parties in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa  Assembly have moved the Peshawar High Court and sought the court’s intervention on the issue of oath-taking of members on the reserved seats.

The members of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz,

Pakistan Peoples Party and Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl filed the petition urging the court to see that the members elected on the reserved seats are sworn in to be able to cast their votes in the upcoming Senate polls.

It reads that failure to administer the oath to members elected on the KP reserved reflects mal-intent.

The plea further prayed the court to postpone the Senate polls if the elected members are not sworn in.

The petition was filed as the issue of oath-taking of members on the reserved seats is facing uncertainty owing to the deadlock between the KP government and opposition parties.

KP Food Minister Zahir Shah Toru said that the governor took an illegal step by writing a letter summoning the assembly session.

Pakistan Peoples Party’s Central Information Secretary Faisal Karim Kundi, last week, had announced to approach the courts as well as the Election Commission of Pakistan to convene the provincial assembly session.
