The federal government on Wednesday requested the Supreme Court of Pakistan to recall its judgment that struck down the Sacked Employees (Reinstatement) Act 2010.

Initially, the Supreme Court of Pakistan gave its verdict by rejecting the requests of review petition however on a suo moto action taken by the SC it has now been decided to reinstate the sacked employees.

Justice Mansoor Ali Shah in his dissenting note said that in a strong democratic system parliament is supreme and degrading parliament is tantamount to degrading democracy
