Supreme Court of Pakistan on Monday issued notice to Prime Minister Imran Khan for attending a ceremony of a particular political party.
“The prime minister of Pakistan is the prime minister of the whole country, he can not associate himself with a particular group or a party,” the apex court noted.
Justice Qazi Faez Isa issued the notice to PM Imran Khan for attending the ceremony of a wing of a political party.
Attorney General Khalid Jawed Khan was also issued notice by the court for assistance in this regard.
Justice Isa expressed displeasure with advocate general Punjab after he skipped a case hearing and attended the program at Islamabad’s Convention Centre on Friday.
The apex court has also summoned vice-chairman Pakistan Bar Council, President Supreme Court Bar Association and advocate general Punjab on the next hearing.
Justice Isa said that he was referring the matter to the chief justice for suo motu notice and added that prima facie the prime minister participated in the program in his personal capacity.
