Islamabad: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) challenged the Lahore High Court’s (LHC) decision in the Supreme Court on Friday regarding the election of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Hamza Shahbaz as Punjab’s chief minister, Express Tribune reported.

Deputy speakers of the Punjab Assembly Sardar Dost Muhammad Mazari, Hamza Shehbaz, and others have been made parties in the petition filed in the apex court.

In its appeal, the PTI has stated that while the LHC had accepted the party’s position, the order to convene a meeting of the provincial assembly on short notice would prove detrimental, terming the LHC’s decision “unconstitutional”, stating a suitable timeframe must be provided to convene a meeting of the assembly so that all members may attend as votes are to be recounted on Friday.

The PTI further called for the suspension of Hamza Shahbaz from the CMs post and removal from office so that “fair and transparent elections” can be held.

Therefore, the PTI called for the order of election to be suspended immediately, seeking their appeal to be heard by the apex court on an emergency basis.
