LAHORE - A full bench of the Lahore High Court Thursday restrained election commission of Pakistan from announcing official result of PP-10 till the final disposal of the identical constitutional petitions disputing Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif's decision to hold his seat and vacate seat from PP-48. As per election commission of Pakistan's announcement by-election in PP-10 would be held on Aug 11. The bench comprising Justice Maulvi Anwar-ul-Haq, Justice Muhammad Khalid Alvi and Justice Sajjad Hussain Shah had adjourned the hearing till third week of September. Shahid Orakzai, a freelance journalist, in his petitions demanded that Mian Shahbaz Sharif was unable to hold the office of the CM since June 21 after being elected from PP-10.  He submitted that according to Article 223 (4) of the constitution Shahbaz lost his PP-48 seat at which he took oath as the CM from PP-10. He submitted that Mian Shahbaz took oath as the CM on June 08 as member from PP-48, according to the article 223 (4) he lost his seat in the assembly on June 21 in consequence of the notification of his unoPP osed return from PP-10.  He said instead of obeying the constitution in letter and spirit, particularly clause (4) of the article, Mian Shahbaz had chosen to bypass the given course by a tricky resignation from his second seat. He is adamant that he can still hold his first seat in defiance of article 223, he said. Orakzai prayed that the Punjab chief secretary be directed to ensure the vacation of CM office and report all the decisions taken by the CM after June 21 to the governor as required under clause (c) of the Article 131 of the Constitution. He is no more the leader of the house in the assembly and as such he cannot hold the office of the CM or participate in the meetings of the assembly or any committee thereof, he said. He said that secretary election commission had made a public statement that constituency PP- 48 stands vacated as a result of Shahbaz's unoPP osed return in PP-10 but he was visibly trying to reverse the constitutional operation to suit his personal convenience and unlawful interest. He said Shahbaz's refusal to vacate the seat he elected earlier was a clear betrayal of his oath as the CM. He further added that the election commission had not formally responded to the reported resignation. He said after June 21, Shahbaz had no constitutional authority to continue in office and he was visibly subverting the constitution by force and other positional means.  He added that he aPP rehended that Shahbaz may dissolve the Punjab Assembly although he was not empowered to invoke that power of the CM. He requested the court to prevent any such action, which would affect the tax payers all over the country because expenditure on election was charged upon the federal consolidated fund. He prayed that election commission of Pakistan be directed to withhold all actions required under the constitution and the law in the consequence of the notification issued for PP-48 and PP-10 until the disposal of this petition. He also prayed that Shahbaz be restrained from invoking article 112 until the ruling of this court. He further prayed directives for the election commission to announce election schedule for PP-48.
