Justice Yahya Earns Social Media Praise For Precise Dissenting Note In Senate Polls’ Case

Justice Yahya Afridi’s clear yet precise dissenting note in the Supreme Court (SC)’s ruling on the presidential reference against secret balloting in the Senate polls has earned him praise on social media.

Disagreeing with the majority opinion of the bench, he observed: “the opinion sought by the Worthy President, Islamic Republic of Pakistan in the instant Reference, is not a question of law within the contemplation of Article 186 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, 1973. Accordingly, the same is returned unanswered”.

Many social media users have praised the judge’s brief yet crisp dissenting note, saying that he upheld the sanctity of the Constitution by noting that the presidential reference was absurd to begin with.
