KARACHI: Federal Law Minister Farooq H Naek has said that the court orders do not apply to the president and the prime minister as their official decisions have constitutional protection and cannot be challenged.

Speaking to media representatives after visiting the Sindh High Court on Saturday, he said all the decisions of the president and the prime minister have constitutional protection under article 242.

Naek said that running a government is the executive's job, making a law is the parliament's job while the court's job is to ensure the implementation of the laws.

He, however, said that the government respects the Supreme Court and does not want any clash between the institutions.
