ISLAMABAD The Supreme Court on Tuesday issued notice to Attorney General of Pakistan to assist it over an election matter of NA-123 Lahore. The court observed that there was no judicial verdict available on such issue. The seat fell vacant after Makhdoom Javed Hashmis resignation, as he had won more than one seat. Malik Pervez of PML-N won the seat in the by-elections. Three-member bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry heard the petition filed by Chaudhry Mohammad Ilyas Gujjar and granted him leave in the case. Adjourning the hearing for indefinite time, the court also allowed parties concerned to file statements in this regard. Ahmed Raza Qasuri, counsel for the applicant, had argued earlier that only polling date could be changed by the Election Commission of Pakistan without disturbing the seven-stage election procedure. He stated that the election process in the constituency should have been commenced from June 1, 2008, from where it had been stayed due to litigation, leaving no room for acceptance of fresh nomination papers. He contended that no order about filing of fresh nomination papers was passed by the court for the constituency NA-55 Rawalpindi and it should also be adopted here. He further contended that the date of polling for elections on NA-123 between him and other petitioners whose nomination papers had been scrutinised and accepted in terms of the apex courts judgment dated May 26, 2009, should have been announced. Only six candidates from the constituency were in the run and they had been allotted election symbols, including PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif, Qazi Kamran Gujjar, Mohammad Sajid Latif, Noor Elahi, Dr Amber Shahzada and the petitioner, Chaudhry Mohammad Ilyas Gujjar, he added.
