Supreme Court rejects plea seeking formation of full court for hearing Punjab CM's election case

ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) Monday rejected the petition seeking the formation of a full bench for hearing the case of the Punjab chief minister’s election — where Hamza Shahbaz defeated Pervez Elahi.

According to the brief verdict, the same three-member bench — headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial, and comprising Justice Ahsan and Justice Munib Akhtar — will hear the petition filed by the PTI. Following the decision, the country's top court decided to adjourn the hearing on the ruling till 11:30am tomorrow (Tuesday).

The hearing began at 1am and comprised several sessions due to breaks.

During the final session of the hearing, Justice Bandial said that the court needed more legal clarification regarding the formation of a full bench to issue a verdict on the case.
