Lawyer Makhdoom Ali Khan said that this was a case before 1970. The people paid the heavy price of Bhutto’s unopposed victory in the form of 11 years of Zia. A court cannot save democracy. He wrote an article in an international newspaper 40 years ago. Gone, the court should not rule.

The Chief Justice said that the court does not want to govern, the court has been cautious in the power of self-notice, the political space is difficult for the people, when there is a political crisis, the court has to intervene, the people want a corruption-free government. Want.
