Quick Glance: Political Analysts and Experts React to SC Verdict on Reserved Seats
  • Reactions from analysts and legal experts on the Supreme Court verdict declaring the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) eligible for reserved seats, its legal significance, and implications for the country's political future have poured in.

  • The 8-5 majority ruling announced by the 13-member full court bench nullified the Peshawar High Court's decision upholding the Election Commission of Pakistan's denial of reserved seats to the SIC.

  • The judges who disagreed with the majority judgment include Chief Justice Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa and Justices Yahya Afridi, Amin-ud-Din Khan, Jamal Khan Mandokhail, and Naeem Akhtar Afghan.

  • The Supreme Court's verdict ensures that PTI is entitled to its reserved seats, reinforcing judicial independence and the rule of law, despite the government's attempts to manufacture a 2-3 majority based on seats taken from PTI.

Quick Glance: Fact Check: Trump’s Misrepresentation of Supreme Court Ruling
  • Trump inaccurately claimed that the Supreme Court's ruling on presidential immunity provided him with a "total exoneration", despite none of his cases being dismissed or prior verdicts being overturned as a result of the ruling.

  • While the ruling is a victory for Trump, it does not clear him of legal troubles. His trial in Washington for election interference has been indefinitely delayed, and he still faces charges in other criminal cases.

  • The ruling does not shield Trump from civil liability in cases involving defamatory statements or fraudulent business practices.

  • The case was not dismissed but referred back for further analysis to determine if certain allegations constitute official acts that grant the president immunity from prosecution.

Quick Glance: Wisconsin Supreme Court Allows Ballot Return via Drop Boxes Again
  • Voters in Wisconsin can once again return absentee ballots via drop boxes, according to a ruling by the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

  • The decision released on Friday overturns a near-total ban on ballot drop boxes imposed by the state's high court in 2022.

  • Friday's ruling makes it easier for Wisconsinites to vote by reinstating a 'convenient and reliable option.'

  • The decision was criticized by the Republican Party, while attorneys argue that using drop boxes provides voters with security and certainty in casting their votes.
