ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister’s Special Assistant Ataullah Tarar, Friday, while stressing the need for a full court bench to hear the PTI’s petition in the deferment of elections case in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab said the nation is not going to accept the one-man show.

Talking to reporters here outside the Supreme Court building, he said that the only objective behind the government’s request to the Chief Justice of Pakistan to form the full court is to restore the dignity of the apex court. He said that under the prevailing situation formation of a full court has become necessary; failing to do so will not only prolong the crisis but intensify it.

Tarar raised concerns about the reputation of the institution if the benches continue to be broken and constituted like this. He said that the “Chief Justice should have formed a full court bench” and claimed that the entire nation was saddened by what is happening in the top court. At the same time, he noted that lawyers had reservations about today’s bench, and the objection was raised after the formation of the bench.

Tarar also criticised the negation of judges’ orders through circulars before the hearing. He argued that if such decisions continued to be made, it would negatively impact the institution’s reputation.

He urged Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial and political leaders to resolve all problems through consultation while emphasizing that the nation was already suffering from problems, so it was essential to “sit together and solve the problems.”

They have no objection when one man show gives decision in their favour, and they are all praise and shout at the top of their voices that what a good decision constitution is upheld and democracy is saved. When they know that the decision is going to come against them because of not adhering to constitution themselves. They make hue and cry against one man show. What Hypocrites!!
