The Supreme Court of Pakistan has scheduled a hearing for October 23 to address the case related to the organization of general elections within a 90-day timeframe. This matter will be brought before a three-member bench, presided over by Chief Justice Qazi Faiz Isa, with Justices Aminuddin Khan and Athar Minullah also on the panel.
Multiple parties, including the Supreme Court Bar and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), have submitted petitions urging the conduct of general elections within 90 days.
Furthermore, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) had previously announced that the eagerly anticipated national parliamentary elections would occur in the final week of January. This declaration put to rest uncertainties about the electoral process, even though it involved a delay of approximately two months.
The constitution of Pakistan stipulates that elections should take place within 90 days following the conclusion of a five-year term of the outgoing parliament, which happened on August 9. Subsequently, then-Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif dissolved his government in accordance with this constitutional requirement.
