The Supreme Court affirms its commitment to ensuring that elections will not be disrupted or thwarted under any conditions.

The Supreme Court, in its latest ruling, has rejected yet another request for a postponement of the upcoming general elections.

During the hearing led by Acting Chief Justice Sardar Tariq Masood of Pakistan, the petitioner’s counsel was questioned about their stance on the country’s stability.

Justice Mansoor Ali Shah emphasized that the court will not entertain requests to change the February 8 election date.

In a session presided over by Acting CJP Masood, a three-member bench listened to petitioner Amir Khan’s appeal.

The Supreme Court dismissed a review petition linked to the delimitation issue in Balochistan’s PB-12 constituency, citing that constituency alterations couldn’t be made after the election timetable had been set.

The acting chief justice stressed that the election date is of significant importance, noting that the country’s stability hinges on it.

Justice Shah questioned the petitioner’s intent regarding the stability of the country, cautioning that addressing individual petitions could disrupt the election process.

Asserting that any attempt to postpone the election won’t be permitted, Justice Shah emphasized, “Under no circumstances will the elections be allowed to derail.”

Justice Athar Minallah added that no delays to the election would be tolerated.

The recent landmark decision by the Supreme Court appears to have closed avenues for delaying the February 8 general elections in Pakistan.

The apex court ruled that challenging constituency delimitation after the election schedule’s announcement is not permissible.

In a three-member bench led by Justice Masood, the court overturned the Balochistan High Court’s decision against the constituency delimitation of two provincial assembly seats in Quetta.
