The Supreme Court has scheduled the hearing to give its ruling for later this afternoon on the case submitted by MDP seeking clarification from the country's top court after the session which would have seen the submission of a no-confidence resolution against the Speaker of the Parliament be canceled after the Deputy Speaker of the Parliament called in sick.
The Supreme Court said in a post via 'X' that the hearing to pass its ruling on the case has been scheduled for 4:00 p.m. this evening. The Supreme Court said that the hearing would be broadcast via its YouTube channel.
The Parliament has been unable to move forward with the no-confidence resolution which frustrated MDP and it turned to the Supreme Court for a legal solution.
Deputy Speaker of the Parliament MP Eva Abdullah has been on medical leave since last week and Parliament Standing Order stipulates that only the Deputy Speaker can chair a session that could potentially vote out the Speaker.
The Top Court held two hearings on the case in which all the parties related to the mater were given a chance to make their arguments before the Supreme Court bench.
Representatives from MDP, the Parliament, and the Attorney General's Office as well as PPM and Democrats who legally intervened for the case spoke in court.
The Democrats said that the Supreme Court has no place in the matter and that the issue can be resolved within the parliament.
But MDP, the PPM coalition as well and the Attorney General's Office requested the court intervention.
