A private TV channel late on Saturday reported that in a latter addressed to Chief Justice Chaudhry, the heads of the provincial judiciary said as the apex court was hearing the petitions field against the 18th Amendment, there was no constitutional mechanism to fill the vacant posts till the matter is decided by the larger bench. Therefore, they have urged the CJP to comprehend the severity of the matter and take necessary step.
