ISLAMABAD March 28 : The Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan on Tuesday resumed hearing a petition by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) against the Election Commission of Pakistan’s (ECP) decision to delay elections in Punjab.

A five-member larger bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Ijazul Ahsan, Justice Munib Akhtar, Justice Aminuddin Khan and Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail is presiding over the hearing.

As proceedings commenced, CJ Bandial observed that the “question before the court is a simple one, can the ECP postpone the election date or not”.

“If it has the authority to do so, the proceedings will end right there,” he said.
