    Abstract

    The threat of an imminent clash" of the institutions of the state is the latest rhetorical device employed by the government in its efforts to pressure the Supreme Court. The implication is that the Supreme Court has exceeded its constitutional mandate in the NRO case by laying the groundwork for violating the president's immunity. In this effort President Zardari and Governor Salmaan Taseer of Punjab are resisting the appointment of judges recommended by the chief justices of the Supreme Court and the Lahore High Court.
