PTI faces another setback from the Supreme Court
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) recently made a significant move by filing a plea in the Supreme Court of Pakistan, seeking the swift organization of general elections within a 90-day timeframe.
However, this endeavor encountered a setback as the Supreme Court responded by raising objections to the PTI's plea, eventually returning it. The court's primary contention was that the plaintiff had not pursued the appropriate channels before presenting the plea, thereby highlighting a procedural flaw. Additionally, the plea lacked a clear articulation of how the election delay would infringe upon fundamental rights.
The PTI's decision to approach the Supreme Court on August 28 to address concerns regarding the postponement of general elections signaled their commitment to electoral transparency and adherence to constitutional timelines.
