PESHAWAR, 27 May: The Supreme Court of Pakistan has said that the Parliament has no power to review the Constitution of Pakistan.

During the hearing of miscellaneous petitions against the 18th and 21st constitutional amendments yesterday, Justice Aijaz Chaudhry observed that the Parliament went beyond its powers to amend some clauses in the Constitution of Pakistan.

Justice AK Dogar said during the hearing that nomination of the judges of the superior courts only through the Chief Justice, eligibility of a single person for prime ministerial slot for several terms, lack of intra-party polls and eligibility for Parliament’s membership after five-year disqualification are illegal and unconstitutional practices.

The Supreme Court said the political parties are doing everything according to their wishes after making such constitutional amendments.
