Full court hears petitions against SC Practice and Procedure Act 2023

Islamabad, September 18, 2023 (PPI-OT): A full court of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Qazi Faez Isa is hearing petitions challenging Supreme Court Practice and Procedure Act 2023. It is the first time in the country's history that the court proceedings are being broadcast live.

The Supreme Court Practice and Procedure Act states that a three-member bench, comprising the Chief Justice and the two senior-most judges of the apex court, will decide whether to take up a suo motu notice. Previously, this was solely the prerogative of the Chief Justice.
