The Supreme Court (SC) ruled on Wednesday that elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab should be held within 90 days.

“Parliamentary is a salient feature of the Constitution,” the top court remarked.

The verdict was announced by a five-member apex court bench headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial and comprising Justice Mansoor Ali Shah, Justice Munib Akhtar, Justice Jamal Khan Mandokhail, and Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar.

Ahead of the verdict, Room No.1 of the court — where the much-anticipated decision was announced — was packed with journalists and lawyers. PTI’s Shireen Mazari and Fawad Chaudhry and AML chief Sheikh Rashid were also in attendance.
