SC refuses to issue interim order to stop National Assembly election

The Supreme Court (SC) has refused to issue interim order to stop National Assembly election as demanded by Seema Khan who claimed nominations were not filed with fair representation of Muslim communities.

The top court has mentioned that the conduction of National Assembly election is one of the important phases for the constitution implementation which will not be right for affecting it. The court has expressed confidence that the government, political parties and opposition will ensure representation as per the principle of inclusion.

The bench of justice Anil Kumar Sinha says, “The interim order should not be issued as there’s no such state to believe now that the defendants will not ensure the participation as per the principle of inclusion in every organs of the state while implementing the constitution, and halting of National Assembly election does not seem right considering it is the most significant phase in implementation of the constitution.”
