The Sindh High Court is seeking comments from the chief election commissioner and provincial election commissioner on Friday on a contempt application for allegedly defying the court’s order regarding re-description of seven constituencies in Naushero Feroz district.
Syed Mureed Ali Shah submitted that the court on February 12 had directed the ECP to initiate proceeding for re-description of the seven National Assembly and Sindh Assembly constituencies falling in the district within one month. He alleged that the court order was communicated to the Chief Election Commissioner Fakhruddin G Ebrhim and Sindh Election Commissioner SM Tariq Qadri on February 23 for information and necessary action. No progress, however, has been made as yet.
He pleaded to the court to initiate contempt proceedings against the alleged contemners for their blatant failure to implement the orders of the court. Headed by Justice Ahmed Ali M Sheikh, the bench issued notice of the contempt application.
