The decision today according to Chairman PTI was historic because it has demarcated the limits of judicial and parliamentary authority. It will set a precedent that once the superior judiciary has convicted someone, no non judicial forum can hold otherwise. The obvious implication said Imran Khan is that once a conviction from a court of law has attained finality, disqualification from membership of a legislature would be automatic.
Imran Khan also said that the decision is a victory for rule of law, for supremacy of the constitution and in the final analysis for equity and justice. Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf salutes the Supreme Court for demonstrating that before law everyone is equal whether a common man or a Prime Minister.
