Pressure mounts on Pakistani PM to resign following SC judgement

Pressure mounts on Pakistani PM to resign following SC judgement(Islamabad) – Supreme Court of Pakistan has issued detailed judgment against Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in contempt of court case. Gilani was convicted on 26th April by the country’s top court for contempt of court because he failed to implement the orders of the country’s apex court.
The main opposition parties of the country including Pakistan Muslim League (N) led by former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Tehreek-e-Insaaf led by Imran Khan, Jamat e Islami and others have called for the Prime Minister to honour the Superior Judiciary and abide by its verdict.
Pakistan’s constitution doesn’t allow a convicted person to hold public office however Gillani seems oblivious to this and has proceeded on a foreign trip to the UK.
Recently released poll by Gallup Institute also reveal that over 65% of the population wants Prime Minister Gilani should resign after his conviction.
