CJP Bandial admits constitutional litigation hurt Supreme Court’s performance

The CJP, Umar Ata Bandial, admitted on Monday that the Supreme Court’s performance had been affected by “bitter” constitutional litigation. He said that the court faced a difficult challenge that was not only hostile and aggressive, but also made the court passive and victimized. He spoke at a full court reference.

He also said that he hoped that political stability would lead to economic stability, but he was saddened that his “innocent observations” were sometimes ridiculed. He said that his term “short and sweet judgement” was used sarcastically and his greeting “good to see you” was misinterpreted and misreported.
