LAHORE: The Punjab Bar Council (PBC) on Tuesday demanded that the provincial government restore the local government system in the province without further delay as ordered by the Supreme Court of Pakistan.

A meeting presided over by PBC Vice Chairman Chaudhry Amjad Iqbal expressed concern over the non-implementation of a judgment issued by the apex court that envisages restoration of the LG system in Punjab. A statement issued by the council said the meeting noted that the government by not restoring the LG system committed contempt of court. The council urged the government to immediately reinstate the local bodies and hand over the powers to the elected representatives.

A three-judge bench of the SC had ordered restoration of the local bodies in the province after declaring their dissolution as unconstitutional.
