SC plays role in strengthening democracy: Law Minister 

Islamabad, July 14, 2022 (PPI-OT):Minister for Law Azam Nazeer Tarar says the Supreme Court has once again played its role in strengthening democracy and rule of law in the country through its latest judgment in the suo motu case of National Assembly Deputy Speaker’s ruling. He was addressing a news conference along with Prime Minister’s Adviser on Kashmir Affairs and Pakistan People’s Party leader Qamar Zaman Kaira in Islamabad on Thursday.

The Minister for Law said the apex court in its detailed judgment has declared the ruling of Deputy Speaker National Assembly as unconstitutional and malafide. He said the apex court also rejected the foreign conspiracy narrative of PTI Chairman Imran Khan thus laying it to rest forever.

The Minister for Law said this is the unanimous verdict by five judges of the Apex court while two Honourable judges added to the judgment saying that violation of article 5 of the Constitution regarding loyalty to state and Constitution has been proved. Azam Nazeer Tarar said the Supreme Court however left it to the discretion of the government and the parliament to pursue the case under Article 6.

Speaking on the occasion, Qamar Zaman Kaira said PTI Chairman Imran Khan is constantly lying to the nation. He said that Imran Khan’s lies are exposed now. Qamar Zaman Kaira said PTI’s theory of foreign conspiracy is in fact conspiracy against democracy and democratic institutions of the country.
