ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) are expected to file petitions in the Supreme Court on Monday against the ruling of National Assembly Speaker Fehmida Mirza on Prime Minister Gilani’s conviction by the apex court.
On Sunday while addressing a rally in Rawalpindi, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said Gilani was no longer the prime minister of the country and people would come on to the streets against those who were trying to destroy the Supreme Court in order to protect their corruption.
Following suit, the PML-N also announced that it would file a petition through party MNA Khawaja Asif. The petitioner will seek cancellation of the NA speaker’s ruling.
National Assembly Speaker Dr. Fehmida Mirza in her ruling said there was no legal ground for sending the Supreme Court verdict convicting the PM in the contempt of court case to the Election Commission of Pakistan.
