Pakistan is facing severe economic and political crisis these days. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has spoken of martial law or emergency-like situation in the country due to the constitutional crisis. However, he added that this could happen if the Supreme Court does not constitute a larger bench of its own to hear the petition of Imran Khan’s party PTI related to elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. During this, he refused to accept the decision given by a three-judge bench on PTI’s petition against the order of the Election Commission.

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister and People’s Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto gave this response on Monday in Larkana, his seat in Sindh province. He said that his party would not accept any decision of the three judges on elections in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Punjab. He said that his party will accept and implement the decision of the full court.

He said that his PPP is protecting the Constitution. Its founder, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, gave the country a 1973 constitution, which was later disbanded by dictators such as Pervez Musharraf, but reinstated by former President Asif Ali Zardari.

Imran Khan targeted

During this, he targeted former Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and his party. He said that sons and daughters of dictators are in PTI. He said that the decision of the three judges will not be accepted. One of these three judges, through his decision, rejected some votes in the Chief Minister’s election last year and handed over the Punjab government to PTI. He asked the Chief Justice of Pakistan to set up a full court in the larger interest of the nation.

Ban on the order of the Election Commission

Pakistan’s Supreme Court has called the Election Commission’s decision to postpone elections in Punjab province till October 8 as ‘unconstitutional’. Along with this, the apex court also fixed May 14 as the date for polling in the province. Following this decision of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, the Shehbaz government, which has been trying to delay the provincial elections citing security issues and economic crisis, has suffered a setback. At the same time, it is being seen as a big relief for Imran Khan.

Earlier on March 22, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) delayed assembly elections in the politically crucial Punjab province, saying the country was facing a cash crunch and a deteriorating security situation in the country. In such a situation, elections cannot be held at this time. Then the Commission had said to announce the new date of polling on October 8. Let us inform that before that the Election Commission had decided to conduct polling between April 30 and October 8. The move was criticized by former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan.
