Plea against women seats

LAHORE: A CONSTITUTIONAL petition has been filed in the Supreme Court, praying to eliminate reserved seats in the National and Provincial assemblies for women and direct the Election Commission to hold election on the reserved seats.

Advocate Tariq Aziz filed the petition and stated that 188 women parliamentarians were sitting in the assemblies after being nominated by their party heads. He said these women parliamentarians were not public representatives but a burden on the public exchequer. The petitioner prayed to the court to eliminate the reserved seats and order the ECP to hold election.
