Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced to observe Youm-e-Tashakur on Wednesday after the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict in the election delay case.
Following the Supreme Court’s ruling in the election case, the political party declared that Youm-e-Tashakur would be observed on Wednesday at Liberty Chowk at 9:00 p.m.
Imran Khan’s address will be broadcast throughout the country, according to Hammad Azhar, the central PTI leader.
Former premier Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) stated earlier in the day that the Sharif family would not support an independent judiciary.
SC Announces Verdict in Punjab, KP election case
Imran Khan claimed that the ruling class believes that PTI will be weak by October and that they will then hold elections while speaking to PTI employees and fans via video link. In October, he continued, PTI would never deteriorate.
Because of their past, the Sharif family won’t tolerate an independent judiciary. Today, the justices are the target of a campaign by the Sharif family. The Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz [PML-N] is the same group that has in the past dropped photos from airplanes.
Criticizing the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) parties, Khan said that they are afraid of facing a defeat in the elections. “The government personalities are giving threats to the families of the judges and spreading fear among the people.”
Supreme court verdict
The Punjab elections order issued by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on March 22 was deemed invalid by the Supreme Court (SC).
The reserved decision on the PTI’s appeal contesting the Election Commission of Pakistan’s order delaying the elections in Punjab and KP was made by a three-member panel made up of Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial, Justice Ijazul Ahsan, and Justice Munib Akhtar.
The ECP order delaying the provincial assembly elections until October 8 was deemed “unconstitutional” by the Supreme Court, which also mandated that the government issue Rs21 billion for elections in Punjab by April 10.
Punjab elections must be held on May 14 per a ruling by the highest court. The SC further ordered Punjab’s interim administration to support the panel.
