In response to the new local government rules, the Supreme Court was reported to have asked for a response from the Punjab government and the Election Commission.

The issue was brought before the Lahore High Court, where Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh presided over the hearing of a petition filed by Former provincial minister Muhammad Rizwan through the mediation of Qazi Mubeen Advocate, in which it was argued that the caretaker government issued a notification on 22 February 2023, restoring the old local government rules of 2013 and appointing new administrators.

The lawyer who took the position of filing the application said that the work of constituencies has been completed under the new local government laws, and once under the law, the appointments and the establishment of local bodies “cannot be suspended.”

Former province minister Muhammad Rizwan, who filed the case, said that “the decision to enact new local government rules was a policy decision made by the elected government”.

“The Caretaker Government cannot suspend or reverse the decision of the elected government, and its actions are a violation of High Court decisions”, he added.

The petitioner’s counsel requested that the court annul the notification suspending the new laws and restoring the old local government system.
