ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The Supreme Court has on Thursday refused to pass an order for restraining the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) hold a sit-in in Islamabad on November 2.

Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali observed that when the executive would fail to protect the fundamental rights of citizens, then the top court would intervene to protect their rights.

He said that the court would not involve in any political issue.

The PTI had announced that it will mobilize thousands of its supporters for the November 2 protest aimed at ousting Prime Minister Sharif over allegations of corruption.

The government and the opposition parties have been unable to evolve joint Terms of Reference (ToR) for the investigation, as the government insists that investigation should involve all those named in corruption cases, while, opposition parties, mainly PTI says that it should begin with the assets of the premier’s family.
