Just two days ahead of judicial commission’s meeting to be held on Monday (October 24, 2022) for approving the appointment of new Supreme Court (SC) judges, Justice Qazi Faez Isa of the SC has objected to three nominations for their appointment as apex court judges, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.
Sources told 24News TV channel that in a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Umar Bandial, the judge raised objections to the nomination of Lahore High Court’s (LHC) Justice Shahid Waheed, Sindh High Court’s (SHC) Syed Hassan Azhar Rizvi and Justice Shafi Siddiqui, saying their elevation to the SC had already been rejected on July 28, 2022, and that it would be inappropriate to reconsider their names.
He stressed the need for considering the names of competent judges for their appointment in the SC.
