CJP Bandial has decided to keep a three-member bench to hear the election matter.
The federal government’s request for a bigger bench to hear the electoral commission’s examination of the Punjab elections was denied.
Umar Ata Bandial, the Chief Justice of Pakistan, has decided to keep the three-member panel for hearing the election issue.
The reason list for the election review petition has been issued by the Supreme Court Registrar’s Office.
On June 13, a three-judge panel led by CJP Bandial will hear the case.
Previously, the CJP said that the court would consider two matters concurrently: the electoral commission’s review petition challenging the apex court’s decision to conduct polls in Punjab, as well as petitions challenging the review of judgements legislation.
Both cases will be heard simultaneously next Tuesday, according to the chief judge.
The Supreme Court issued notices to the federation on the petitions challenging the review of judgements legislation, while further hearing in the ECP’s review petition in the Punjab elections case was postponed till Tuesday.
