February 7, 2013
slamabad: Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) founder Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has filed petition in the Supreme Court for the reconstitution of the Election Commission.
While talking to reporters outside the apex court before submitting the plea, Dr Qadri said that he would appear before the apex court as in person in the case, adding that he had confidence over the court.
He said that the government had overruled constitution while constituting the Election Commission. “The current Election Commission is unconstitutional,” he insisted.
He said that the constitution stated that the ECP would be consisted of five members.
Qadri said under the constitution, 15 names would be presented before the parliament before the appointment of members in ECP. The parliament would hear all the 15 candidates under article 213.
The constitution bounds parliamentary hearing before the appointment of members in the commission, he added.
