Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) withdrew its petition on Monday from the Supreme Court (SC) seeking a level playing field in the upcoming general elections.

A three-judge bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa and comprising Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar and Justice Musarrat Hilali, heard the case.

PTI lawyer Latif Khosa told the chief justice that his party will approach the people’s court in this matter, adding instead of a level playing field, the entire field had been taken away from PTI.

“Do you want to continue this case or not?” asked CJP Isa.

Khosa replied that he had been directed to withdraw the plea.

Last year, the party filed an application in the SC to get a level playing field in the general elections amid reports of hurdles in the filing of nomination papers.

“It is most respectfully prayed that this Honourable Court may be graciously pleased to direct the respondents to provide a level playing field to the PTI for free and fair election, in the interest of justice,” the petition said.

Political parties, including PTI: SC asks ECP to ensure a level playing field

The petition also requested the court to order the government to refrain from harassing PTI’s workers and leaders and letting them participate in the election without discrimination.

The petition was filed after a similar complaint regarding the snatching of nomination papers was filed in the Election Commission of Pakistan by the party.

The more they show how biased they are the more creditability will be lost from the elections. Such an election will just result in financial instability and chaos

Atleast Qazi Sb is sincere to his family. Earning billions from selling out justice will make his children rich

When you think of Justices Munir, Molvi Mushtaq, Anwar and Saqib Nisar, don't forget Faez Isa.

The commentators are all PTI rodents. They should be hosted in Auschwitz-Birkenau Palaces in Poland. A hearty feast is awaiting them.

A good move. Justice can not be expected from a court headed by a facilitator of the establishment and Nawaz Sharif.
