CAN OR WILL JUDICIARY TACKLE BIGGEST NATIONAL CRISIS ON ELECTORAL REFORMS?
With Constitution’s Sadiq And Ameen Condition Gone For Candidates To Qualify And Contest, Worst Elections Maybe Ahead! Can Liars And Dishonest Also Take Part, Cheat And Win Polls!?
SEEMS worst elections 2018 are ahead with common people unaware of laws being led to ask a big and tough question: Can judiciary take suo moto action against legislation and passing of bills that eliminate electoral reforms under a false guise of “doing electoral reforms”!? If a bill is passed against national interest, does Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan enjoy power and authority to stop it? Or is CJSC empowered only to follow any bad laws passed by National Assembly, Senate and President? Many people may make many jokes around it which are unmentionable here.
AFORE-GOING fears against national interests of a 200 million nation brings us to a seemingly impossible situation to resolve. However, that might not be the case. It’s not a complex but a simple condition that may be tackled relatively easier than imagined. Like Supreme Court’s verdict turned into a clash against people’s mandate! Or disposal of a constitutional principle of candidates to be truthful (sadiq) and trustworthy (ameen). People fear that now super rich liars and super fraudulent traitors can also take part, rig and cheat, and win polls: A popular “fake” national mandate. Now an ex-PM, ousted on being not truthful and not trustworthy, and his ruling party’s majority vote, can defy and change Constitution, become party head and prime minister again, against Judiciary and Supreme Court’s verdict, and present results of a fake and rigged elections as national mandate against Judiciary and Constitution of Pakistan!
SOLUTIONS are obvious, leading analysis on those concerned issues may have us believe, to resolve matters without confrontation between institutions: The law of the land must prevail, without national interests jeopardized. For example, judiciary can take suo moto notice and action on any legal point on which it is legally empowered, authorized and have jurisdiction upon, and then follow it up from there to raise all inter-related issues which are by the way endless and resolve outstanding matters to protect national interests before anarchic politicians drive this country towards another coup d’etat.
JUDICIARY can summon any leader and official, exercise its constitutional power and authority and ascertain with a strong hand that its verdicts are implemented, complete in letter and spirit.
