The Supreme Court in Pakistan is currently hearing a case challenging the Supreme Court (Practice and Procedure) Act 2023, which requires a committee of three senior judges to form benches on constitutional matters of public importance. The hearing is being broadcast live on television, with all 15 judges of the top court presiding over the case. Chief Justice of Pakistan Qazi Faez Isa formed a full court to take up the pleas challenging the legislation, which was suspended earlier this year. The federal government has urged the court to dismiss the pleas, arguing that they are inadmissible. During the hearing, lawyers argued their case, with one lawyer stating that Parliament should not have a say in matters that belong to the Supreme Court. The judges questioned the lawyers on various aspects of the law and its impact on judicial powers. The court requested the lawyers to focus on constitutional arguments and address the specific provisions of the Constitution. The hearing was adjourned and will resume later in the day.
