Islamabad (agencies) Hearing on the ongoing political upheaval in Pakistan is going on in the Supreme Court for the fifth consecutive day. According to Geo News, Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandiyal said during the hearing that the decision passed by the deputy speaker in the National Assembly in April appears to be in violation of Article 95 of the Constitution.
