Imran Khan has filed a petition with Pakistan’s Supreme Court, challenging what he has termed as an “undeclared martial law” in the country. Khan, who is the opposition leader in the National Assembly, said he is seeking “proper constitutional implementation” for the people of Pakistan. He cited the increasing number of military operations across the country, as well as the use of paramilitary forces to control political dissent in recent weeks, as evidence for his claim. The petition further claims that the country’s constitution has been “subverted” in recent months. Khan’s petition comes following a number of controversial moves by Prime Minister Imran Khan, including the appointment of military officers into civilian roles and the dissolution of provincial governments. Khan has already requested a meeting with the Chief Justice of Pakistan, though it is unclear if that request will be granted. The move by Khan is likely an attempt to put pressure on the government to address his grievances and to reverse its recent decisions.
