The PDM leaders, according to the sources, held deliberations on the legal and political challenges and some of the participants suggested that they should file reference against three judges of the bench hearing the case.
Nawaz Sharif also strongly rejected the bench, saying that there are judges like former Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar.
“Justice is not expected from this three-member bench of the Supreme Court,” said Nawaz Sharif in the PDM’s huddle took place on Sunday.
Nawaz Sharif said that the Attorney General for Pakistan should appear before the bench and should express lack of trust.
The PDM leadership also suggested to boycott the Supreme Court three-member bench and Nawaz Sharif approved this suggestion.

Later, the PDM issued a declaration and expressed lack of confidence in the Supreme Court three-member bench, and asked the three judges not to hear the elections delay case. They demanded that a full court be constituted for hearing of the matter, arguing that the majority decisions could save the country from the crises.
