Former interior minister Sheikh Rashid has decided to challenge the Election Commission of Pakistan’s decision to delay the election.
Sheikh Rashid has prepared a constitutional petition that will be filed in the supreme court through Advocate Azhar Siddique
The election commission, ministries of interior and finance are made a party in the case.
In a series of tweets, the former interior minister said the PTI had dissolved assemblies in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa so elections could be held in 90 days. “Article 6 should be imposed on the occupant group in a week otherwise, anything can happen in the country,” he wrote.
“There would be clarity on the constitutional crisis created by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) by Monday, adding that the PML-N was not interested in holding elections even in October as it was afraid of the public.”
“Where will the money come from for elections in October when its not available in April?” he questioned. “First, the country collapses economically and politically and then breaks apart,” the AML chief warned.
