Statement of Mr. Haroon-ur-Rashid, Vice-Chairman and Mr. Hassan Raza Pasha, Chairman, Executive Committee, Pakistan Bar Council.


They have expressed that the Hon’ble Chief Justice of Pakistan should constitute Bench comprises on nine senior-Judges of Supreme Court without exclusion of Mr. Justice Qazi Faez Isa and Mr. Justice Sardar Tariq Masood to make its image as impartial and neutral, so that public and lawyers community may not question upon the Bench for hearing of important matter in respect of determination of constitutional responsibility and authority to announce date of election for Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Provincial Assemblies. They said that we expect that Mr. Justice Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi should voluntarily recuse to remain as part of the Bench from hearing of this important matter, which the proprietary demands from him.
