PakistanTribe (PT) correspondent from Islamabad reported that Justice Athar Minallah hared the petition filed by Shahid Orakzai about appointment of Pakistan’s new Chief Election Commissioner (CEC), Sardar Raza Khan.
Shahid Orakzai while defending his petition told the court that Parliamentary Committee fails to complete consultative process about the nomination of Chief Election Commissioner and the nominees including Justice (R) Tariq Pervez and Justice (R) Tanveer Ahmed Khan not discussed properly.
“It seems that Parliamentary Committee was willing to nominate Justice (R) Sardar Raza Khan as new CEC,” said the Petitioner.
“I want to discuss constitutional aspect of the nomination not basic or political,” said Shahid Orakzai while asked by the head of Islamabad High Court’s bench that any of his basic right violated by the nomination of new CEC?
Justice Athar Minallah canceled the petition and fined Mr. Orakzai over wasting court time in a matter which wasn’t declared objectionable by any opposition party.
The special bench of Islamabad High Court also declared that none of any basic right of the petitioner have been violated by the appointment.
Shahid Orakzai is considered among those who file petitions in higher courts of Pakistan.
