ISLAMABAD - The Supreme Court on Tuesday referred the matter of 26 parliamentarians, whose fate is hanging in balance, to recently constituted Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). A three-member bench of the apex court comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Tariq Pervaiz and Justice Amir Hani Muslim heard the petition filed by Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan, against bogus votes in the electoral list. The Chief Justice gave two weeks to the Commission to ponder over the issue and said on receipt of Commissions comments or reply the court would decide the case. Three senators, Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, Syed Sajid Hussain Zaidi and Dr Asim Hussain, nine MNAs Chaudhary Asghar Ali Jutt, Jamshed Ahmed Dasti, Muhammad Akhtar Khan Kanju, Sardar Shafqat Hayat Khan, Ch. Tassaduq Masud Khan, Haji Khuda Bux Rajar, Mst Khadija Aamir Yar Malik, Sardar Mumtaz Khan, Sardar Awais Ahmed Khan Leghari, 11 MPAs Syed Basit Ahmed Sultan, mian Muhammad Ajmal Asif, Ahmed Mujtaba Gilani, Sardar Meer Badshah Qaisrani, Malik Saif-ul-Malook Khokhar, Ijaz Ahmed Khatoon, Malik Ghulam Raza, Saifuddin Khalid, Ghulam Qadir Khan Bettani, Muhammad Rashad Khan and Maulvi Muhammad Sarwar Musakhel and six MPs on reserved seats of women and minorities are Humaira Awais Shahid, Rana Rizvi, Arif Masih, Rasheed Khan Bhai, Chettan Mal were elected after the promulgation of 18th Amendment. Naseer Bhutta, appearing on behalf of three Punjab MPs, said that Constitutional Amendment required validating the elections of the MPs, who were elected in bye-polls after the promulgation of 18th Amendment. He said that if the government does not bring new amendment then the consequences would follow. He, however, said the budget session is in process. The Chief Justice said they want system to continue, but added that the government should also keep in its mind that the minister, who had presented the budget, was also elected after the 18th Amendment. He further said that the government should find out some way, adding; The voters have exercised their constitutional rights in the bye-polls, but the technical faults lie on the part of the government. The court observed that the Election Commission should also examine the bogus votes in the electoral rolls and eligible voters should be enter in it. Imran Khan, the petitioner, has contended that according to Election Commission almost 44 percent of the registered voters were bogus, which has made the status of present assemblies and the government dubious. Imran said that the government formed on the basis of bogus votes neither represents the people nor it could be expected to protect the vital interests of the country. A 'political mafia is ruling Pakistan that got elected through bogus votes, he said adding that democratic change in Pakistan could only be brought through an independent election commission and new electoral list. The case has been adjourned for two weeks.
