Minority-ruled benches will compound existing crisis, says Tarar

ISLAMABAD (HRNW ) – Federal Law Minister Azam Nazir Tarar on Friday said the verdicts issued by minority-ruled benches would compound the existing crisis.

Talking to the media along with Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb, he said the Supreme Court should issue a verdict that could be helpful for the country’s political future. “The PML-N never refused to hold political talks [with the political opponents]”, he added.

He went on to say that everyone knew about the SC’s ongoing proceedings adding that the nine-member bench had been reduced to a five-member bench. “Four judges’ [recusal] reflected that the petition has been disposed of”, he added. Today, Justice Jamal Ahmad Khan Mandokhail, he said, rescued himself from hearing the case.
