Pakistan’s Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, has criticised the Supreme Court for issuing a stay order against a bill aimed at reducing the powers of the chief justice, while the law is still being formulated. The Supreme Court (Practice and Procedure) Bill 2023 aims to curtail the powers of the chief justice, including a revocation of their ability to take suo moto notice in an individual capacity. The legislation has been passed by the National Assembly and the Senate, but was challenged in the top court, which blocked the government from implementing it. Speaking at the launch ceremony of the 1973 Constitution mobile application, Sharif urged state institutions to come together to protect the constitution and safeguard the national interest. He also discussed the importance of teaching young people about the country’s constitution.
