It's official now -- Maryam Nawaz direct attack on SC judges through her tweets in her cousin's illegal majority case

By Irum Saleem

After the Supreme Court on Monday rejected the coalition government’s request to form a full court bench on petitions related to the recently held Punjab chief minister’s re-election — including a review of its interpretation of Article 63-A, PMLN vice president Maryam Nawaz launched a direct attack on the SC judges.

    Her lethal attack may invite the SC’s wrath.

    She attacked the judges saying the SC did not form the full bench to put honest judges away. Besides she took the three bench SC judges by saying that it has taken away “our 20 member majority and now 10 members of PMLQ”.

   This woman is forgetting that she and her party had purchased loyalties of 25 PTI lawmakers and PMLQ chief Chaudry Shujaat and his sons.

   She and her party seems to have no shame. And instead Maryam attacking SC. What a shame.

  In tbe today’s hearing Dawn reported that the short order was announced after a marathon hearing that began at 1pm and lasted more than eight hours, during which time a three-member bench comprising Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, Justice Ijazul Ahsan and Justice Munib Akhtar heard the arguments of government and its allies’ counsels, who repeatedly urged the top judge to constitute a full bench and prevent the case from being politicised.

The request for the full bench was made by the government during the hearing of a petition filed by PML-Q leader Chaudhry Parvez Elahi challenging Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker Dost Mohammad Mazari’s decision in the chief minister’s re-election last week, which led to Hamza Shehbaz’s victory.

During the re-election, Mazari had decided against counting the votes of 10 PML-Q lawmakers, which were cast in Elahi’s favour, citing a letter written by PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain in which he had instructed them to vote for Hamza instead.

During the previous hearing on Saturday, they had allowed Hamza — who was re-elected on July 22 — to remain “trustee” chief minister till Monday. PAK DESTINY
