JCP takes up appointment of two judges today

ISLAMABAD – The Judicial Commission of Pakistan for appointment of judges to superior courts will meet today (Saturday) with Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry in the chair to discuss appointment of two judges in the Supreme Court.
Two senior-most judges have been included in the commission, who will give their input for the appointment of new judges to the superior courts.
After the approval of the 19th Amendment, it will be for the first time when nine members will participate in the commission’s meeting.
Justice Tassadduq Hussain Jillani and Justice Nasirul Mulk are the two new members of the commission and after their inclusion, the strength of judges in the commission will rise to five.
The CJP is the commission’s chairman and its other members are Justice Javed Iqbal, Justice Main Shakirullah Jan, Justice Tassadduq Hussain Jillani, Justice Nasirul Mulk, Justice (r) Chaudhry Ijaz Ahmad, Attorney General for Pakistan Maulvi Anwarul Haq, Law Minister Babar Awan and Pakistan Bar Council representative Dr Khalid Ranjha.
Earlier, Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry had summoned the Judicial Commission’s meeting on January 15 for considering the appointment of two judges in the apex court, but the meeting was postponed due to the death of Justice Javed Iqbal’s parents. Sources said the Judicial Commission will consider the name of Sindh High Court Chief Justice Sarmad Jalal Osmany as judge of the Supreme Court.
