Faisalabad, May 25 : Pakistan Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) President Aitzaz Ahsan has refused to use the minus-one and three-year service formula for the reinstatement of deposed judges.

"We reject minus-one and three-year service formula," Ahsan said while addressing lawyers' convention here.

"We want democracy and we are desirous of Parliament's supremacy, however, the parliament itself also has a role to play for the same purpose," Aitzaz said.

He confirmed that lawyers' Long March would be arranged on June 10.

Setting the tenure of Chief Justice of Pakistan up to three years in the proposed constitutional package is tantamount to minus-one formula that is unacceptable to legal fraternity.
