The Supreme Court declared on Thursday that Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s April 3 speech was “illegal” and that dissolving assemblies was also unconstitutional.
The National Assembly was reconstituted by a five-member panel led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial.
The panel also ordered NA Speaker Asad Qaiser to call a special session of the parliament on Saturday, April 9 at 10 a.m.
Earlier, while hearing the suo-motu notice, CJP Umar Ata Bandial stated that the matter involving National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s order preventing the motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Imran Khan will be decided after five days of hearings.
Following the end of all of the parties’ arguments, the Supreme Court reserved its decision, which was issued tonight.
