Supreme Court advises PTI to return to National Assembly

The Supreme Court has restated its recommendation that the PTI should return and join the National Assembly because the people had chosen their representatives for a five-year term.

On Thursday, the top court’s recommendation came during a hearing of PTI’s appeal against the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision to deny its appeal of the party MNAs’ resignations being accepted piecemeal.

The party was instructed to return to parliament and participate in the NA by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, who presided over the two-member bench that also included Justice Ayesha Malik.

The court adjourned the proceedings indefinitely after hearing the arguments.

The CJ told the PTI council, “Your real responsibility is to play a role in parliament. Millions of people have been affected by floods.”

CJP Bandial stated that flood affectees do not have water to drink, “You will also have to look at the country’s economic situation. Does the PTI have any idea how much it will cost to hold by-elections on 123 seats?”

In reference to the SC’s comments, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry argued that the “regime change operation” had caused Pakistan’s economy to lose billions of dollars.

The PTI leader was alluding to his party’s assertion that the current administration also took a part in the “regime change operation” through which the United States overthrew the previous administration.
