Delimitations: hearing to resume today

The Supreme Court on Monday adjourned the hearing of delimitation of constituencies in Sindh case till February 18 (today) after completion of MQM lawyer Farogh Nasim's arguments in the matter. A three-member bench of Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani with Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Azmat Saeed Sheikh heard the matter.

Advancing his arguments, Farogh Nasim contended that Election Commission of Pakistan has constitutional powers for delimitation of constituencies, saying if any provincial government tried to delimit constituencies then there are ample chances of rigging. MQM also challenged the appointment of Deputy Commissioner as Delimitation Officer in Sindh province, saying there is no provision in the concerned law to appoint a Delimitation Officer. Nasim pleaded that delimitation of the constituencies should be considered on the number of voters in a constituency instead of population. Later, the hearing of case was adjourned till February 18 (today).
