ISLAMABAD (APP) - Islamabad High Court here Wednesday dismissed a petition seeking removal of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. However, it issued notice to the Election Commission over the election issue of PP-141 Lahore after observing that prima facie the matter required hearing of respondents viewpoint. A division bench comprising Justice Mohammad Munir Peracha and Justice Mohammad Ramzan Ch issued a short order dismissing the plea filed by Shahid Orakzai for removal of the Punjab Chief Minister. Justice Mohammad Munir Peracha straightaway rejected arguments of the petitioner and admonished him over raising his voice while repeating his submissions. By louder speaking, you cannot make the bench to embark upon wrong decisions, Justice Peracha observed. At the outset of proceedings, Shahid Orakazi claimed that the chief minister was not entitled to hold the office as he had vacated PP-10 Rawalpindi seat and resigned from PP-48 Bhakkar seat after becoming chief executive of the province. Without having any seat in the assembly he could not hold the office, he added. He said Article 223 of the Constitution placed a bar on the dual membership of any candidate elect and a person having succeeded on two seats had to quit one within a month. A member of an assembly could not vote in another assembly under the same Article and the principle applied to members of National Assembly and Senate, he added. But Mian Shahbaz contested election to another constituency while retaining office of the CM which contravened the Constitutional provisions, he claimed. Responding to a query, he said under Article 224, serving ministers could not contest elections as only caretaker set up had to function after dissolution of assemblies. He said after dissolution of assemblies, elections had to take place after sixty days under the supervision of caretaker government. The petitioner said on by-election to PP-141 Lahore, he had filed his papers as candidate but ECP neither placed his name on the final list nor issued him election symbol. Later, Mujtaba Shujaur Rehman was announced as returned candidate from the constituency, he added. Orakzai also claimed that he had filed a plea with Lahore High Court and it had been pending for the last six months. He accused the concerned officials of using delaying tactics.
