He said that the Prime Minister was working on the instructions of President Dr. Arif Alvi. Justice Ejaz-ul-Haq asked, "If a coalition government is formed, is it possible for the largest party to be walled off?"

Where is the constitutional crisis ?: Chief Justice During the hearing of the suo motu notice in the Supreme Court, the Chief Justice asked Barrister Ali Zafar why he did not explain the constitutional crisis.

Justice Jamal Mandokhel said that if the majority of the assembly does not want dissolution, can the Prime Minister recommend to the President? However, Justice Ejaz-ul-Hassan said that despite the deviant members, PTI is the majority party. "What if the majority party gets out of the system?" Barrister Ali Zafar said that he could not answer the political issue as a lawyer.  'You address this issue' Ali Zafar, counsel for the President, while referring to the decision of Junejo case, said that the government of Muhammad Khan Junejo was overthrown and the court declared the overthrow of Junejo government unconstitutional.

Speaking to media outside the Supreme Court, former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the united opposition was saying that the deputy speaker had violated the constitution and left the no-confidence motion process incomplete. "In our opinion, the speaker has full power of rolling and his decision is final," he said.  Who is the Prime Minister who decides the no-confidence vote: Chief Justice During the hearing of Deputy Speaker Rowling's suo motu notice, Chief Justice Omar Ata Bandial said that if the no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister had been voted on April 3, it would have been known who the Prime Minister is.

He said that if the parliament failed then the matter would go to the people. He said that every article of the constitution has to be taken into consideration for its protection.  On this, the Chief Justice said that if the abuse is from the entire House instead of one member, what will happen? Ali Zafar said that if there is a difference of opinion among the judges, can the parliament intervene? " Just as parliament cannot intervene, so can the judiciary." The Chief Justice inquired whether the formation of the federal government was an internal matter of Parliament.  Isn't the Prime Minister the representative of the whole nation? Barrister Ali Zafar, the president's lawyer, said the best solution to the current situation was to go for elections. Justice Jamal Mandokhel asked whether the Prime Minister is not a representative of the whole nation. Barrister Ali Zafar replied that the Prime Minister was undoubtedly the representative of the people. Justice Mazhar Alam asked how there would be protection if the constitution was violated in the parliament. He also said that the court is not the guardian of the constitution and if anyone is affected by the parliamentary proceedings then how will justice be done? Barrister Ali Zafar said that the protection of the constitution can only be in accordance with the constitution.
