Pakistan apex court's decision to hold elections in Gilgit Baltistan is unconstitutional, says activist

A political activist from Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK), Dr Amjad Ayub Mirza has termed the decision of the Pakistan Supreme Court to hold elections in Gilgit Baltistan and form an interim government there as illegal and unconstitutional.

He said the apex court has taken this decision under the pressure from Pakistan Army.

A seven-member larger bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed on April 30 accepted the plea of Prime Minister Imran Khan-led federal government to amend the Government of Gilgit Baltistan Order 2018 to conduct the general elections in September as well as setting up a caretaker government during the interregnum period.
