Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Wednesday that the recent decisions of the Supreme Court made a mockery of the Constitution, Aaj News reported.

Addressing a meeting of the coalition partners, the prime minister said that the fate of the nation was being decided with strange decisions.

The premier was referring to a recent verdict of the three-judge bench of the Supreme Court that declared the Election Commission of Pakistan's (ECP) decision to postpone Punjab elections till October 8 unconstitutional and announced to hold polling on May 14.

Following the development, the ECP on Wednesday, announced that polling in Punjab will be held as per the schedule given by the Supreme Court.

"Such a terrible scene has never met eyes. I want to say that such kind of treatment with the Constitution and law had never been witnessed before," the premier said.

The prime minister elaborated that last week, they held a detailed meeting, followed by two cabinet meetings and parliamentary meetings over the evolving situation.

He questioned how a decision of another bench was ignored while members of the three-judge bench who had earlier recused themselves and again joined it.

"A circular was issued over Justice Isa’s directive, followed by the formation of a six-member bench that took up the issue and decided it," he added.

The prime minister said the members of the National Assembly had debated the issue in the ongoing session and a resolution had already been passed while tomorrow, another resolution would be tabled in the house.

PM Shehbaz said that the coalition parties meeting was convened to mull over the situation and evolve a solid response.

"In this regard, the law minister will table another resolution before the parliament on Thursday," he added.

The real mockery was when NAB laws were amended, as well as the recently passed bill by NA to curtail Supreme Court powers. It is also a mockery when the economy is in chaos and people have no access to food and employment, but the government is spending billions on schemes and projects. The ultimate mockery is when politicians swear by democracy but their every move reeks of undemocratic practices. In many ways, this shows the character of individuals that we elect and foolishly hope for better days.

Chief Justice of Pakistan must be given the same ending as Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, i.e. on the noose

Is Shehbaz Sharif under the influence? How is a ruling to direct elections be held within the constitutional frameworks a mockup? Appeal to establishment to surrender to the wil of the Pakistani people stop the power play. Pakistani people deserve true democracy.
