    18th amendment:SC adjourns hearing till tomorrow





    The Supreme Court Monday adjourned till tomorrow the hearing of a number of identical pleas challenging certain provisions of 18th Amendment, particularly the formation of a judicial commission for the appointment of senior judges.
    During the course of hearing, Hamid Khan, the counsel for the Supreme Court Bar Association started his arguments before a 17-member larger SC’s bench headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry.
    Hamid Khan said in his arguments the parliament is a pillar of the state, adding hence, the Parliament being a part to the state, should function by abiding by its limits. He added petitions filed against 18th Amendment are not aimed at weakening the parliament.
    As many as 16 petitions have been filed before the Supreme Court against several provisions of the 18th Amendment. The petitioners contended that the formation of the judicial commission under the Amendment was against the basic structure of the constitution and independence of judiciary.
    The same bench will also hear the federation’s plea seeking review a verdict declared on December 16, 2009 against the NRO. Justice Khalilur Rehman Ramday remarked that the new amendments showed as if all the flaws are present in the judges while the ministers and secretaries are epitome of goodness.
    The court put off the case till tomorrow due to the sad demise of legal expert Malik Rab Nawaz.
