Anarchy feared ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s no-confidence vote



ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The Supreme Court in Pakistan issued notices to four political parties PPP, PML-N, PTI, and JUI-F on Saturday in response to a petition filed by the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) seeking the SC’s intervention to prevent "anarchy" ahead of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s no-confidence vote.

The Supreme Court ordered the Inspector General of Police in Islamabad to submit a report on the PTI supporters’ storming of Sindh House on Friday. According to the statement, hearings on the petition would be held daily.

A two-judge bench, led by Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Munib Akhtar, heard the SCBA’s petition in which it urged the top court to direct all state functionaries and political stakeholders to allow peaceful execution of the no-confidence vote in the National Assembly against the prime minister, to avoid a possible "anarchic situation" that could result from the government and opposition clashes.
