PESHAWAR (Dunya News) - The Peshawar High Court (PHC) has summoned the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister and the Peshawar Assembly speaker on a petition seeking contempt of court as elected members on reserved seats fail to take oath. 

PHC's Justice S.M. Atiq Shah and Justice Waqar Ahmad presided over the case. 

The court issued notices to the CM and the speaker after hearing the petition. 

The petitioner's counsel highlighted that despite a detailed verdict and a 14-day deadline, the oath has not been administered to the elected members on reserved seats. 

Justice Shah inquired why the oath had not been administered despite the detailed verdict. 

Consequently, the PHC has summoned the KP CM and the provincial assembly speaker within a week, directing them to respond to the notices.
