The petition was filed by the Pakistan Lawyers Forum and others in 2002 saying that Musharraf had violated the Constitution by getting himself 'elected' through referendum because there are no constitutional provisions that allowed election in such a manner. They argued that Musharraf also made alterations in the Constitution according to his own whims to protect his illegitimate regime.
