Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah issued the order on Tuesday while hearing a petition seeking implementation of articles 62 and 63 of the constitution in order to disqualify candidates with dubious record from participating in the May 11 elections. The petition was filed to nullify of all schemes announced by the federal and provincial governments related to recruitments or property before caretaker governments were formed. The former parliamentarians are accused of finalizing such schemes to lure people into helping them in the upcoming elections.
Moreover, a complaint has been forwarded to the Lahore High Court (LHC) against the prolonged and unscheduled power outages across Punjab. According to the compliant, discrimination was being meted out to power consumers in Punjab where 18-hour load shedding is being carried out as compared to a few hours power shutdown in Sindh.
