The Supreme Court of Pakistan has given two days to Sindh for legislation on local bodies’ election, including delimitation in the province on Tuesday.
While hearing a case pertaining to local government elections and delimitation of electoral constituencies, Chief Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk scolded Attorney General of Pakistan over federal government’s failure in appointment of a permanent Chief Election Commissioner (CEC).
The CJP warned that Supreme Court would take back its judge, who is serving as acting CEC, if the government did not appoint a full-fledged Attorney General till Oct 28.
The chief justice expressed his annoyance saying that no legislation was made by Sindh and Punjab authorities in regards with local government elections and delimitation.
He gave two days to Sindh to call assembly session to present an amendment bill in the house by Thursday, and warned that contempt of court notice could be issued to chief minister Sindh over disobedience of court.
