Federal Minister for Law and Justice Senator Azam Nazeer Tarar has said the matter of independence of the judiciary must not be politicized, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Responding to the statement of PTI's Chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan, the Law Minister said remarks of PTI and its founder on the matter are a cynical attempt to politicize the Supreme Court's suo motu notice in line with the Islamabad High Court's (IHC) judges letter.

He said the notice has been taken under article 184(3) of the Constitution and that the Constitution of Pakistan has to be followed and implemented.     

Azam Nazeer Tarar said it is the discretion of the Chief Justice and the committee of senior judges to constitute benches and not a matter of politics.  

He asserted that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) was looking to politicize the Supreme Court's suo motu notice.  

"It is far better to not stage politics on matters in line with the independence of the judiciary," he added.

Separately, PTI leader Barrister Gohar Ali Khan said on Tuesday that the party founder had asked to form a full-bench court on the Islamabad High Court's (IHC) judges letter.

Expressing his thoughts, Gohar said: "It is good to see that the Supreme Court (SC) has taken suo motu notice of the IHC judges' letter."

Khan urged the need to announce the verdict of the PTI founder's disqualification as soon as possible. "There is a dire need to ensure that no one interferes in the judiciary," he added.

Speaking about Bushra Bibi, Khan asserted: "Bushra Bibi is being kept in isolation.".

 In line with the postponement of the Senate elections in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Khan said: "We strongly condemn the delay of the postponement of the elections in KP."
