Justice Ather Minallah's dissenting note and deepening constitutional crisis

Justice Ather raised many important questions on the conduct of Chief Justice of Pakistan in his detailed dissenting note

 In another twist to the political and legal debate over the controversy surrounding the case regarding delay in holding elections in Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Justice Athar Minallah on Friday released his dissenting note, confirming that the Supreme Court’s suo motu was dismissed 4-3.

Justice Minallah’s note released on Friday stated that he had read the detailed reasoning of Justice Shah and Justice Mandokhail and he “agrees with their opinion, particularly regarding the final outcome of the petitions and the suo motu assumption of jurisdiction by a majority of 4 to 3 because this was the understanding in the meeting held in the anteroom on February 27.”
