The court ruled that the governor could not refuse to administer oath to the chief minister-elect and the president should appoint another representative to administer oath to Hamza Shehbaz.

The court also directed to send a copy of the LHC’s decision to the president for implementation on the orders within 24 hours.

President Arif Alvi also distanced himself from the newly elected government from the first day. The president had refused to administer oath to federal cabinet members compelling the government to postpone the ceremony.

However, the President administered oath to cabinet members at a swearing-in ceremony held yesterday at Aiwan-e-Sadr.
