Web Desk May 28, 2012

The Sindh High Court (SHC) has issued notices to Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, Speaker National Assembly Dr Fehmida Mirza and the chief election commissioner for June 6, Express News reported on Monday.

The notices were issued in a petition filed against the speaker’s decision to not forward the Supreme Court’s reference to the Election Commission of Pakistan in the prime minister contempt case.

Petitioner Maulvi Iqbal Haider had maintained that Gilani was convicted by the Supreme Court and the Speaker's decision against forwarding the reference to the Election Commission of Pakistan was not in line with the law, justice and the Constitution of the country.

He requested that the speaker’s ruling be declared null and void.

for all other people, Legislative branch deals with making the law... The judicial branch has the final say on any law.
