Referring to the “interference” of the SC in parliamentary matters, the PM said that the constitution mandated all the institutions to work within the specified limits and that no institution could interfere with the authority of another.

Regarding the demand put forward by the involved parties to the SC for the formation of a full court to hear the case, he said, “The requirement of the reputation of the judiciary and the quality of justice was that a full court should be formed so that justice would not only be done but also be seen to be done, but the judicial decision has dealt a blow to the expectations of the legal community, citizens, the media and the people for justice.”
