Quetta: (Friday, July 13, 2012) The Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry said here yesterday that the Supreme Court will be the first stoppage on the way to an extra constitutional move. He said that now there will only be the supremacy of law and constitution in the country.

The CJ, who was addressing a gathering at a reception hosted in his honour by the Balochistan High Court, said that nothing but rule of law is the only solution to the vows facing Pakistan today.

Expressing his concern and discomfort with the present law and order situation in the country, the Chief Justice said that the country was presently facing worst kind of lawlessness, bloodshed, kidnapping for ransom and disregard for the supremacy of the Constitution.

Lamenting the poor law and order situation in the country, he asked, “Is there any place of the country where rights of the people are being protected?”

Commenting on the rumours in the media regarding unconstitutional forces looking forward to oust the democratic setup in the country all over again, CJ Chaudhry said that the judiciary will be the first to oppose if any step is taken against the country or its people, parliament or the judiciary in future.

Reiterating his point, and referring to the rumours that are rather rife in the federal capital, the CJ said, “I heard a TV anchor saying a lot of rumours were circulating in Islamabad at present, but I reiterate that now there will only be the supremacy of the law and Constitution in the country.”
