‘Victory of public mandate’: PTI heaps praise on SC judges for ‘historic’ verdict

As the Supreme Court declared Punjab Chief Minister Hamza Shehbaz’s election as null and void, PTI leaders including former prime minister Imran Khan heaped praise on the apex court judges for upholding the Constitution against “all threats” and termed the verdict a victory of public mandate.

In a tweet from his official handle, PTI Chairman Imran on Tuesday appreciated the SC judges for standing firm and upholding the Constitution and law “against all manner of threats & abuse”.

I appreciate our SC judges for standing firm & upholding the Constitution & law, against all manner of threats & abuse. I want to thank Barrister Ali Zafar & his team. I want to thank the people of Punjab for coming out in unprecedented numbers in bye elections against rigging.
— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) July 26, 2022

He also thanked the incoming chief minister Pervaiz Elahi’s counsel Barrister Ali Zafar and his team for winning the legal battle against the ruling alliance.

“I want to thank Barrister Ali Zafar & his team. I want to thank the people of Punjab for coming out in unprecedented numbers in by-elections against rigging,” he added.

Thanking the Almighty, Imran said tomorrow evening his party will offer thanks to Allah and celebrate with all the people of Pakistan “who have stood by us in our campaign for Haqeeqi Azadi, coming out in massive numbers to show support”.

Tomorrow evening we will offer thanks to Allah & celebrate with all the people of Pakistan who have stood by us in our campaign for Haqeeqi Azadi, coming out in massive numbers to show support. #ShukrAllahShukriyaAwam

Speaking outside the Supreme Court, PTI Vice Chaimran Shah Mahmood Qureshi hailed the apex court verdict saying, “I pay tribute to the judges for tolerating unruly behaviour of the government ministers”.

He said the verdict is the victory of the public mandate and Constitution. “People rejected the imported government and this is a victory of public mandate and Constitution.”

He also lashed out at the deputy speaker, Dost Mohammad Mazari, who belongs to PTI, saying he played a “shameful role” in the chief minister’s election.

“[Prime Minister] Shehbaz Shairf should now dissolve assemblies and call early elections which is the only solution now.”

Speaking on the occasion, PTI leader Asad Umar while responding to the coalition partners’ reservations over the three-member apex court bench said the same judges were also part of the bench which ruled against PTI-led government in April this year.

“Congratulations to the people of Pakistan on this great victory of democracy under the leadership of Imran Khan,” said PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry.

In a tweet, he wrote that CM Hamza should have resigned after his party suffered defeat in recently-held Punjab by-elections in which PTI achieved a landslide victory, securing majority in the provincial legislature.

پاکستان کے عوام کو عمران خان کی قیادت میں جمہوریت کی یہ عظیم فتح مبارک ہو ، اصولی طور پر پنجاب کے انتخابات کے بعد حمزہ کو استعفیٰ دے دینا چاہئے تھا لیکن وہ بے اصولی سیاست میں پڑ گئے آج سپریم کورٹ نے آئین بحال کیا

“But he resorted to ‘unprincipled politics’. Today, the Supreme Court upheld the Constitution.”

سپریم کورٹ نے حمزہ شہباز کی حلف کالعدم قرار دیا ہے۔ آج گورنر پنجاب کو حکم دیا گیا ہے کہ ساڑھے گیارہ بجے سے پہلے نئے چیف منسٹر چوہدری پرویز الٰہی کا حلف لیا جائے۔ ایک جمہوری حکومت کا پنجاب میں آغاز ہوا ہے۔ @fawadchaudhry#عوام_کی_جیت

Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid, who is a close confidant of ex-PM Imran, said the top court has announced the ‘historic decision’ which he said dealt blow to the “gang of conspirators”.

“Those who ‘attacked’ Supreme Court faced defeat… they used foul language against courts and hatched conspiracies while sitting in the PM House,” Rashid said in a video statement.

“All credit goes to Imran Khan as he stood firm against them [ruling alliance] and due to his efforts PTI was able to win 15 out of 20 seats in the Punjab by-elections,” he added.

He also congratulated the newly-elected chief minister Pervaiz Elahi, saying the “truth will soon prevail at the Centre as well”.

Other PTI leaders also echoed the same sentiments, hailing the apex court verdict on the deputy speaker’s controversial ruling.

Justice has prevailed and ppl's mandate has been respected. SC gives decision. Reversal of US regime change conspiracy by strength of ppl who stood behind IK's stand for Haqeeqi Azadi and his taking the cause to the people of Pakistan.
