ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of a petition filed seeking review of the apex court's March 30 verdict, which held the Rental Power Project (RPP) contracts non-transparent and ordered their rescission, DawnNews reported.

A two-member bench of the apex court headed by Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry adjourned the hearing for two weeks upon the request of the counsel for the Pakistan Power Resources (PPR), Dr Pervez Hassan, who  said that preparations for the Rental Power case could not be made on account of Eidul Azha holidays.

Dr Hassan asked the court for two weeks time to prepare for the case pertaining to the government review petition filed against the court's earlier March 30 verdict.

Filed by the federal government through the Water and Power Ministry and the Private Power and Infrastructure Board on April 25, the petition urged the court to reconsider and withdraw the findings made in its verdict that there was no transparency in holding the international competitive bidding by the PPIB and Pepco.
