Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan
Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan with Urdu Translation of 1973 with PDF Download. Senior lawyer Hamid Khan said the speaker or the deputy speaker of the National Assembly misinterpreted and misused the Article 5 of the constitution. Speaking on Geo News programme Naya Pakistan, anchored by Shahzad Iqbal, Hamid Khan said the speaker or his deputy have no authority to reject the no-confidence resolution, adding their job is to arrange voting on it.
He said no executive action can follow from Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan in absence of any judicial or legal proceeding. He said the Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan orders citizens to be loyalty to the State, adding no citizen can be declared traitor in absence of court’s order after judicial proceedings.
He said that talk about invoking Article 6 in this matter is premature as it could be determined only after reviewing the Supreme Court’s judgement. Speaking in a TV programme, Justice (retd) Shaiq Usmani said the deputy speaker’s ruling can be challenged because he interpreted Article 5, whereas it’s only the Supreme Court that can interpret the constitution.
Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan with Urdu Translation
“کسی غیر ملکی طاقت کو کسی منتخب حکومت کو سازش کے ذریعے گرانے کی اجازت نہیں دی جائے گی،” قاسم سوری، جو اجلاس کی صدارت کر رہے تھے، نے فواد چوہدری کے دلائل کو قبول کرتے ہوئے فیصلہ سنایا۔
سوری نے اس تحریک کو ایک جھٹکے سے مسترد کرتے ہوئے اسے آئین کے آرٹیکل 5 کے خلاف قرار دیا، جس میں کہا گیا ہے کہ “ریاست سے وفاداری ہر شہری کا بنیادی فرض ہے” اور چوہدری کے نکات کو “درست” قرار دیا۔
What is Article 5?
Article 5 comprises two clauses under the heading ‘Loyalty to the State and Obedience to the Constitution.’Clause (1) of Article 5 of Constitution of Pakistan mentions that “Loyalty to the State is the basic duty of every citizen”; while Clause (2) says, “obedience to the Constitution and law is the inviolable obligation of every citizen wherever he may be and every other person for the time being within Pakistan.”
How has Article 5 triggered the no-confidence motion?
Clause 1 was utilised by Fawad Chaudhary to reiterate Imran’s allegation of a “foreign conspiracy” against the government. He said the vote of no confidence was the result of a plot orchestrated by a “powerful country” that did not want Pakistan to establish its own foreign policy. Without mentioning the name of any ambassador, Fawad Chaudhary said on Sunday, “On March 7, our official ambassador was invited to a meeting attended by the representatives of other countries.
The meeting was told that a motion against PM Imran was being presented.”Chaudhary also said, “We were told that if the motion fails, then Pakistan’s path would be very difficult. This is an operation for a regime change by a foreign government.”“No foreign power shall be allowed to topple an elected government through a conspiracy,” Qasim Suri ruled after accepting Fawad Chaudhary’s argument. He declared that the minister’s points were “valid.”
