LAHORE - The Lahore High Court's registrar Office Wednesday after putting objections returned three identical petitions challenging the proclamation of "Governor Rule" in Punjab. The petitions were filed by Malik Tariq Aziz Advocate, Zahid Malik and Mr Naqvi. The registrar office objected that the petitioners did not provide the impugned notification of imposition of governor rule in Punjab and other necessary documents. The petitioners in their petitions had collectively taken pleas that the proclamation order was based on no material as mandated by the constitution because the order only relies on the sole ground of the Supreme Court orders pronounced earlier on that day by which chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif was disqualified from the assembly membership. They said this was not a valid ground for invoking emergency power of the constitution. They further said that the president had actually deprived the largest single electorate in the country of a mandated administration and to be ruled by the federation. They said the president and governor acting in apparent concert have played havoc with democracy that is very foundation of judicial and political norms. They pleaded the governor should have convened the session of assembly to provide it opportunity to elect new leader of the House. They said the governor rule had been imposed to undertake horse-trading or to takeover the Punjab government through various means. They prayed the court to declare the governor rule a mere colourable exercise of authority without lawful effect and hence utterly not contemplated by the constitution that does not allow use of emergency provisions for sole political benefit of the president.
