Sultan Ahmed | 13 years ago | Reply As a lawmaking authority parliament is supreme. But as have seen and the history is witness when dictators tried to use the constitution in their own interests and strike to the fundamental rights of the people apex court moved forward and blocked the way of dictators.
Sultan Ahmed | 13 years ago | Reply Islamabad High Court, as for the appointment of judges from the all provinces in regard to representation is importance but not as important as justice as the chief justice of Pakistan had promised with nation. Justice is indispensable and must be easily available to all people passing their life below the line of poverty.
