ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial said during a hearing of the election suo motu case that the court wants the Constitution to be implemented to resolve the dispute.
The court had previously directed political parties to hold a dialogue to reach a consensus on the date of elections. However, despite assurances from the ruling coalition and opposition parties, talks have yet to take place.
The ruling alliance has proposed the formation of a 10-member parliamentary committee with equal representation from both sides for talks on holding elections across the country on the same date. Meanwhile, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has formed a three-member committee for talks with the ruling alliance for elections on the same day.
The development came after a meeting of the ruling allies on Wednesday, where Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had said that a parliamentary committee would discuss the terms of talks between the allied parties and the PTI.
