In a hard-hitting speech, Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Abid Zuberi on Thursday said that Article 6 of the Constitution — which deals with treason — should be applied on Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja for violating the top court’s order and the Constitution as he failed to hold elections within 90 days after an assembly’s dissolution.

Addressing the Lawyers Convention organised by SCBA, Zuberi lashed out at the ECP, saying that the top court’s order could not be implemented so far.

“The ECP is violating the SC’s order and the Constitution,” said Zuberi. He also announced that the SCBA would challenge the recent amendments to the Official Secrets Act and the Pakistan Army Act in the SC.

Addressing the lawyers convention via a video link, Ahsan said, “The CEC has become a facilitator for not holding election [on time]. He is a violator of the Constitution.”

Stressing the need for holding the upcoming general elections on time, the prominent lawyer termed the fresh delimitation as a “delaying tactics”.
