Lahore: Ameer Jamaat e Islami Pakistan Syed Munawar Hassan has said that the Supreme Court decision in the Rental power case had been reserved since long and it was not correct to link it with Dr Tahir ul Qadri’s sit-in.
Commenting on the apex court verdict announced on Tuesday, he called for immediate announcement of the election date and an interim government in order to bring the country out of the uncertain situation.
Syed Munawar Hassan condemned the attempts from certain quarters to make the Election commission disputed, and demanded that the Election Commission should be given more powers. The work on the correction of electoral lists should also be stepped up.
The JI Ameer said that with the arrest of the Prime Minister, his office would not fall vacant with his arrest. This law point should be kept in mind. He urged the jurists to educate the masses about this delicate point.
