Pak Supreme Court rules in favour of PTI for being eligible for reserved seats in Parliament - South Asia News
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: DA Criticizes Seat Distribution in Gauteng Government
  • DA federal council chair Helen Zille criticizes the distribution of government seats in Gauteng between DA and ANC as no agreement was reached.

  • Zille emphasized that the distribution did not reflect the election outcomes and called for genuine power-sharing based on the elections.

  • DA remains open to further negotiations if the ANC treats them as an equal party and aims for real power-sharing to serve the voters of Gauteng as intended.
