1. We demand the complete restitution of the pre-Nov. 3rd judiciary with all its powers and members.
2. We believe a simple executive order is enough to overrule the illegal actions of Musharraf. The delay is becoming unbearable.
3. We do not accept those judges who were inducted after the PCO.

Our stance is in line with the opinion of all of the lawyers and bar councils of Pakistan, 21 former judges of the Supreme Court, 5 former Chief Justices of the Supreme Court and the vast majority of Pakistanis.

Looking forward to your wholehearted participation:

Concerned Citizens of Pakistan
and many other groups of concerned Pakistanis across the country.
