Deputy speaker’s ruling prima facie violates Article 95: Pakistan Chief Justice Bandial

Pakistan’s Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial on Thursday noted that National Assembly deputy speaker Qasim Suri’s move to dismiss a no-confidence motion against embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan through a controversial ruling is, prima facie, a violation of Article 95 of the Constitution as the apex court heard the high-profile case for the fourth day. Chief Justice Bandial, who is heading a five-member bench comprising Justices Ijazul Ahsan, Mohammad Ali Mazhar Miankhel, Munib Akhtar and Jamal Khan Mandokhail, made the observation during the hearing on Thursday.
