LAHORE: On Tuesday, a five-member bench of the Lahore High Court (LHC) headed by Justice Sadaqat Ali Khan held a hearing in the case against Hamza Shahbaz’s taking oath as Punjab’s chief minister, BOL news reports.

“As it seems from the situation we have the issue of oath. One side says the governor should have waited for the president’s letter. Another says that the intra-court appeal has been dismissed,” said Justice Sadaqat.

The Supreme Court had given its verdict related to the dissident members and, apparently, the SC verdict was becoming the basis for the case, he said. “We will talk about the issue of oath-taking only if the petitioners get out of the top court’s decision,” he added.

The justice said both sides should first decide how to come out of the Supreme Court’s ruling. The apex court mentioned that the dissident member’s vote should not be counted, the court remarked.

Hamza’s election as a chief minister is challenged because of its allegedly being illegal.

“The single bench has to decide whether the post-election decision will apply to the past decisions or not,” Hamza Shehbaz’s lawyer said.

“If the dispute about the election is resolved then the case of oath-taking becomes ineffective,” Justice Shahid Jamil added.

The case has been adjourned till the next date.
