Writ Petition

A writ petition is a formal submission made to an Appellate court seeking prompt review of a legal matter. Essentially, it is a request for extraordinary review, asking the court to intervene in a lower court’s decision. The term “writ” refers to an order, and these orders are issued by the High Courts under Article 199 of the Constitution of Pakistan 1973. The primary purpose of Article 199 is to uphold and enforce the fundamental rights of individuals as outlined in the Constitution of Pakistan, 1973. The High Court can intervene in cases where there is evidence of malice, arbitrariness, non-conformity to statutory requirements, or a patently erroneous order. The powers granted to the High Court under Article 199 are diverse and extensive. The orders that a High Court may issue under Article 199 are commonly known as writs, which include writs of prohibition, mandamus, certiorari, habeas corpus, and quo warranto.

Constitutional Petitions and Appeals concerning Delimitation and Election Matters

Delimitation involves establishing the boundaries of territorial constituencies within a country or province with a legislative body. This task is delegated to a high-powered entity known as the Delimitation Commission or Boundary Commission. The Delimitation of Constituencies Act, 1974 dictates that constituencies for National and Provincial Assemblies elections must be delineated after each census. The delimitation process considers factors such as the distribution of population in compact areas, existing administrative boundaries, communication facilities, public convenience, and other relevant factors to ensure cohesive constituency creation. General seat constituencies strive to be as equal in population as possible. The Election Commission, acting as the Delimitation Commission, releases a preliminary list of constituencies, inviting feedback. Our services encompass filing Constitutional Petitions related to constituency delimitation, election petitions against decisions and disputes, matters involving corrupt practices and offenses in elections, and election appeals in Election Tribunals under section 63(1) of the Elections Act, 2017.

Public Interest Litigation

Public interest litigation refers to the utilization of legal avenues to promote human rights, equality, or address issues of significant public importance, as authorized by the Supreme Courts under Article 184 of the Constitution of Pakistan 1973. The primary purpose of Article 184 is to enforce fundamental rights outlined in Part II, Chapter-1 of the Constitution. Supreme Court jurisdiction is invoked only when there is a violation of an individual’s fundamental rights. Public interest litigation serves to champion the causes of minority or disadvantaged groups and individuals. Such litigation can stem from concerns related to both public and private law matters.
