Amid political chaos on no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan which is still hanging in the air, the Islamabad High Court opened its doors at 10pm on Saturday. Court room one has also been opened on the directives of Chief Justice Athar Minallah to implement the top court's orders, reported Aaj News.
Meanwhile, doors of the Supreme Court are also expected to open at 12am, reported Geo.
In a landmark judgement on April 7, the apex court declared National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri's ruling related to the dismissal of the no-confidence motion against the prime minister null and void, restored the lower house of the Parliament and ordered the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government to hold voting on no-trust move on April 9.
Though the National Assembly session was summoned on the top court's order on Saturday, but after the passage of nearly 12 hours, the voting is still in limbo.
As per reports, the cases related to contempt of top court's order are being rerouted through the high court. Therefore, the Islamabad High Court was being opened to implement the Supreme Court's orders.
