SC Mazari's ruling

Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial has recommended Lahore High Court judge Justice Shahid Waheed for his appointment as an apex court judge. Justice Shahid Waheed is the fourth most senior judge of the LHC.

The Judicial Commission of Pakistan will meet on June 30 to consider his elevation to the SC, becoming the second judge from the high court to ascend to the top court. Around six judges have been already elevated to the Supreme Court without consideration of the principle of seniority for the last five years amid the buzz in the legal fraternity around the matter.
