President Zardari has put Pakistan Peoples Party’s government into great trouble by taking a baseless step, in which he ignored the summary sent by the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mr. Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry for appointing Justice Mr. Saqib Nisar of Lahore High Court as a judge in the Supreme Court of Pakistan. President Zardari instead of approving the summary (as per the constitution of Pakistan) released an order on Saturday 13th February 2010, in which he appointed Chief Justice of Lahore High Court on above mentioned vacant post. He passed an order to appoint Justice Mr. Saqib Nisar as the Chief Justice of Lahore High Court.
The honourable judges refused to accept the decisions as they were not approved by the Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mr. Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. The Supreme Court of Pakistan held an extra ordinary session just after the release of these orders and three member bench declared these orders as null and void. After this, the whole nation condemned the Zardari Government for taking such stupid action.
It’s really shameful that when Pakistan is facing its toughest time, our so called democratic government is playing with law and rule…..
