Lahore (Staff Report/Agencies): The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday remarked that political crisis in Punjab has been settled after Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi had “completed the floor test” in the provincial assembly on orders of Governor Balighur Rehman.
LHC judge Justice Abid Aziz Sheikh passed the remarks who was heading a five member bench, comprising Justice Chaudhry Muhammad Iqbal, Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh, Justice Muzamil Akhtar Shabir, and Justice Asim Hafeez, heard the case.
The bench heard Elahi’s petition challenging Governor Baligh Ur Rehman’s order to de-notifying the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) leader as the Punjab chief minister.
Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi managed to secure the confidence of 186 members, in a session that began on Wednesday and ended in the early hours of Thursday.
Lawmakers sitting on the treasury benches entrusted their trust in Elahi, with the opposition boycotting the session in protest after tearing up the agenda copies.
A total of 186 members of the provincial assembly (MPAs) voted in support of Elahi as the chief minister on a resolution moved by provincial ministers Mian Aslam Iqbal and Raja Basharat.
