LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan, Mian Saqib Nisar Friday said that no one should have delusion about delay in general elections as it would be held as per the schedule on July 25.

“No one should be in doubt about the elections, we can’t allow delay in any case,” CJP Nisar remarked while heading a two-member bench seized with the petition filed by Workers Party seeking implementation of code of conduct issued by the ECP.

The petitioner’s counsel Advocate Bilal Hassan Minto argued on the petition saying that appropriate direction is required for implementation of election code.

At this, the bench issued notice to the ECP and put off further hearing until June 4.

In a separate case, the Supreme Court on Friday sought complete record of luxury vehicles approved by the prime minister.

“The court would determine as to how and under what law the PM gave approval of the luxury cars’ use for the cabinet members,” the CJP observed.

Following the court order, former federal law minister Zahid Hamid also appeared before the court and said that he had been using only one car with approval of the federal cabinet. Hamid said he did not know about the entitlement policy. A federal law officer said that 1800cc car was approved by the PM for the former law minister because of security reasons.

At this, the CJP observed that in foreign countries, the prime minister could not even allot a kiosk to anyone but in Pakistan, the ministers used luxury cars with the taxpayer money.

However, the law officer said that 30 luxury cars had been withdrawn in compliance of the court order. At this, the CJP directed the law officer to submit complete record of the cars approved for the cabinet members and put off further hearing till Saturday.
