Bilawal supported Farhatullah Babar’s proposal to restrict the powers of the Supreme Court to the government

Pakistan People’s Party senior leader and former senator Farhatullah Babar proposed to the government to limit the powers of the Supreme Court, which has been supported by PP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto and PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz.

Farhatullah Babar made the proposal through a tweet on the social networking site, in which he also advised the governing coalition and the PTM to study Article 191 of the Constitution.

In his tweet, he wrote that the members of parliament should study this Article 191 to know that the Supreme Court only determines the procedure of judicial proceedings. What is Article 191 of the Constitution?

Parliamentarians/PDM, if you really care about restoring balance of powers then read Art 191 and act decisively. Or stop grumbling. pic.twitter.com/3mTyIRjr3L

It is clear in Article 191 of the Constitution that the responsibility of the Supreme Court is only to implement the law and clarify its procedure.

He further wrote that if the MPs and PDM want to restore the balance of power, then implement Article 191 or stop talking.

In his further tweets, he wrote that a new political philosophy is being created that the constitution is the first, not the parliament, and it is also being told that the constitution is what the Supreme Court says and the rest of the written constitution is nothing.

He wrote that there is a massive transfer of power from the elected to the unelected, parliamentarians should open their eyes and consider the whole matter.

Farhatullah Babar wrote with ‘a lot of politeness’ that the current system regarding the appointment and promotion of judges is for the judiciary and the judges, the current system of nominations and promotions of judges is only for the judges, which makes them subordinate to the judges. Yes, this impression should not be allowed to settle’.

He wrote that the purpose of this statement is not to humiliate anyone, but the impression being made should not be allowed, the latest example of this is the recent letter of Justice Qazi Faiz Isa in which he pointed out.

He wrote that Parliament erred when it did not insist on the procedure for appointing judges in the 18th Amendment and adopted the backward-bending 19th Amendment, a process that further weakened judicial oversight over the past twelve years. The procedure for appointing judges needs to be revised.
