The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Saturday admitted for hearing an intra-court appeal filed by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf members of the Punjab Assembly (MPAs) as well as assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi against the court’s decision on the oath-taking of Chief Minister (CM) Hamza Shehbaz, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

According to the regular cause list issued by the registrar, a five-member larger bench of the court, headed by Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan, will start hearing of the case on June 28.     

Other judges on the bench are: Justice Shahid Jamil Khan, Justice Shahram Sarwar Chaudhry, Justice Muhammad Sajid Mehmood Sethi and Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh. 

The court also directed counsel for CM Hamza to satisfy whether the court could ask any person, other than the provincial governor, to take oath from the newly-elected chief minister. 

Advocate General Shahzad Shaukat will represent the Punjab government in the case, while Barrister Ali Zafar and Imtiaz Siddiqui will appear on behalf of the assembly speaker. 

Similarly, Ahmad Awais Advocate and Mansoor Awan Advocate will represent President Arif Alvi and CM Hamza, respectively.
