LAHORE -  Justice Farrukh Irfan Khan of the Lahore High Court on Friday sent a petition against delimitation for the upcoming Local Bodies elections in Punjab to LHC Chief Justice for constitution of a larger bench.

As hearing started, the petitioner argued that LHC single bench had given decision in favour of delimitation while the another single bench had decided against the delimitation.  He pointed out that LHC’s two parallel decisions had created anomaly and a larger bench should adjudicate upon the matter to remove the irregularity.

He further said neither government nor courts could decide about delimitation once election schedule was announced.

After hearing the initial arguments, the court referred the case to CJ for formation of a larger bench.
