The government has decided to withdraw the review petition against senior most Judge of the Supreme Court Justice Qazi Faez Isa in the presidential reference case against him.

In a tweet today, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said the curative review filed by PTI government in 2021 after the quashment of presidential reference against the Judge, was based on ill-will and meant to harass and intimidate the Judge.

The Prime Minister said the Supreme Court (Practice and Procedure) Bill 2023 passed by the Parliament today will institutionally strengthen the apex court.    

He said it will help make the process of bench formation and exercise of Article 184 (3) transparent and inclusive to serve the cause of justice.
