Notices issued in petition against re-election demand
Karachi: The Sindh High Court SHC on Monday put secretary law and justice ministry, Election Commission of Pakistan ECP, Regional Election Commission and other official respondents on notice in a petition against demand of re-elections in Karachi.
A division bench headed by Justice Maqbool Baqar also issued notice federal as well as provincial law officer and put off the hearing of case to May 20.
The petitioner, Moulvi Iqbal Haider, submitted that demand of the re-election in the city was unconstitutional and against mandate given by voters to candidates except in NA250. He submitted that process of polling in the city except NA250 remained peaceful, adding as candidates of some political parties observed that they could not win, therefore they boycotted the elections at the last hours of the polling malafidely.
The petitioner stated that voters rightly and peacefully used their right of voting and gave their mandate to their representatives including MQM.
He submitted that a political party, Pakistan TehreekiInsaf PTI who raised slogan of a new Pakistan has been rejected the mandate given by the people of city, adding the said political party after defeat staged a protest at Teen Talwar, Clifton Karachi with other political parties who were defeated and demanded re-elections in Karachi.
He said that due such illegal demand, leader of MQM Altaf Hussain during his speech warned establishment as well as leaders of other political parties and said that if they will not accept mandate given to MQM, they should be ready to live separately. However, the petitioner maintained that polls in the city have been held fair and in accordance with law.
Citing federation of Pakistan through secretary Law and Justice Ministry, Election Commission of Pakistan ECP, Regional Election Commission, and chief secretary Sindh as respondents, the petitioner prayed to court to declare that once results have been announced thereafter re-election in any constituency of city cannot be held. He also prayed to court to restrain respondents from announcing re-elections in the city.
