New NAB Chairman

85

Justice (R) Javed Iqbal has been appointed the new Chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB). He has been chosen with the consultation of all the stakeholders. Opposition Leader Khurshid Shah talked to the Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi over the telephone. Three names were discussed and finally they agreed on Justice Javed Iqbal’s name. Justice Javed Iqbal has vast experience as the Justice of the Supreme Court. He headed the Abbotabad Commission whose report has not been published so far. He did a commendable job on missing persons case. He has requisite knowledge of law and experience. He will honour the confidence reposed in him,
Various political parties including JI, PTI & M Q M. have also submitted the names for the Chairman’s position but Justice Iqbal was chosen as the new chairman of NAB. I think Justice Sahib fulfils the requirements. He is honest, learned in law and possesses the requisite qualities of head and heart. He will not compromise his position and pull the trigger of accountability in a biased manner. He would not be swayed by any undue influence from any political party. I think in the present circumstances this is the best choice for the Chairman’s position.
