Pak Presidency preparing to counter restoration of sacked judgesMay 1st, 2008 - 12:22 pm ICT by admin
Lahore, May 1 (ANI): The Presidency in Pakistan has reportedly evolved a strategy to obstruct the restoration of the sacked judiciary through a stay order if the new coalition government attempts to restore them through an executive order.
According to reports, a committee headed by Attorney General Malik Qayyum has been constituted for this purpose. A petition has already been drafted to get a stay order against any executive order intended to restore the sacked judges.
A separate committee, comprising Wasim Sajjad, SM Zafar, Anwar Bhindar and Dr Khalid Ranjha will table a counter constitutional package parallel to that of the ruling coalition.
The committee has been tasked with preparing this new constitutional package after reviewing all recent developments related to the judges restoration and to amendments in the Constitution, the Daily Times reports. (ANI)
