General National

The Supreme Court (SC) is expected to announce a verdict on a case related to reserved seats of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) backed Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) on Thursday (tomorrow).

A special session of the apex court’s 13-member full bench was held under the chair of Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa today, the sources added.

The important consultative session was summoned by the top judge to hold a discussion over the order related to the reserved seats’ case.

It is noteworthy to mention here that the Supreme Court reserved the verdict on the SIC’s appeals yesterday, against the Peshawar High Court’s (PHC) verdict that upheld the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision denying them the reserved seats.

The CJP-led full court reserved the verdict after conducting nine hearings on the SIC’s appeals to listen to arguments from all parties, including the federal government and the poll organising body.

The bench also comprises Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah, Justice Muneeb Akhtar, Justice Yahya Afridi, Justice Amin-ud-Din Khan, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar, Justice Athar Minallah, Justice Syed Hassan Azhar Rizvi, Justice Ayesha Malik, Justice Shahid Waheed, Justice Irfan Saadat Khan and Justice Naeem Akhtar Afghan.
