SC annuls LHC, IHC decisions in officers’ promotion case


Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Nasirul Mulk on Wednesday annulled the decisions of Islamabad High Court (IHC) and Lahore High Court (LHC) in higher officers’ promotion case.

The court has ordered the Central Selection Board (CSB) to form recommendations in 15 days and reconsider the matter of officers’ promotion in 30 days without being affected by the prime minister’s reservations.

Earlier, both IHC and LHC had directed the PM to comply with the recommendations of the CSB against which the establishment secretary filed a petition in the Supreme Court which has been accepted for hearing.
