ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Atta Bandial has ruled that the no-confidence motion should be implemented as per constitution.

Hearing a petition filed by the Pakistan Bar Council to stop the clash among political parties on Saturday, he sought a detailed report from the Islamabad IG on the attack on the Sindh House.

The CJP questioned that whether the attack on a public office was a bailable offence. "Yesterday we witnessed an incident that was against the right to protest and freedom of expression," he added.

He ruled that the court will not interfere in the political process, but law would be perused.

Attorney General Khalid Javed Khan told court that 13 workers attacking the Sindh House were arrested and they had been released by the magistrate.

The court directed the attorney general to file a reference for the interpretation of the Article 63A till 1pm.

The court issued notices to political parties, including the PML-N, the PPP and the JUI-F, and adjourned the hearing till Monday. It stopped the representatives of political parties to appear before court in person, directing them to ensure their representation through their counsels.
