Pakistan Muslim League-Q Leader and Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi has moved the Supreme Court of Pakistan against PML-N leaders, Rana Sanaullah, Hamza Shahbaz Sharif, and Marriyum Aurangzeb, over fears of PTI and PML-Q MPAs either defecting from their parties in favor of Hamza Shehbaz or going missing on the day of Punjab chief minister election.

Elahi, who is also a candidate for the Punjab chief minister slot, has invoked the original contempt of court jurisdiction of the SC under Article 204, referring to earlier apex court order passed on July 1.The top court at the beginning of this month had largely upheld a Lahore High Court verdict for holding a runoff election in Punjab Assembly for the chief minister slot.
