PML-N to challenge Fasih Bukhari’s appointment in Supreme Court

PML-N will move court against the appointment of NAB chairman, Leader of the Opposition in the NA Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan says on Monday. Addressing journalists outside parliament, Chaudhry Nisar says the PML-N would make a decision in 1 day as to when the court would be contacted against the appointment of Admiral (r) Fasih Bukhari as the chairman of NAB.

Earlier, PML-N leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif had also suggested that the PML-N could move the Supreme Court against the consultation of Fasih Bukhari as NAB chairman. “The PML-N may move the Supreme Court , if required, against the consultation, which is has been questionable since the beginning and it will be much better for Fasih Bukhari himself to avoid being part of the dispute, otherwise he himself will become debatable and no one will trust him in the future”, Asif said while speaking to the journalists outside the Parliament House.

Khawaja Muhammad Asif added that the “consultative process” which President Zardari says had been ‘ significant’, wasn’t significant at all. He says giving one name only for an essential position like that of the NAB chief and terming it  ‘significant’ appointment was unjustified.
