ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan summoned an emergency meeting of the party in Bani Gala on Wednesday following the Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s proposal for an ultimate debate in parliament over the judiciary’s jurisdiction.
The meeting of the National Assembly’s parliamentary party will discuss the matter of debate and devise a strategy for it.
PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that they will review the situation to decide as to whether the government wants to pressurise the Supreme Court.
“It has to be focused that either the government wants to affect the ongoing case of the leadership. We will not support any aspect of the judiciary ridicule,” he said.
PM Abbasi said on Monday that old decisions taken by the judiciary should be discussed by the House.
He said that his aim was not to criticise the judiciary but to just remind the House that the country had already suffered a lot due to institutions crossing their limits.
“Such things can never be in the country’s interest. Executive always takes decisions in the national interest but in case they prove wrong, they must not be made culprit,” he added.
