Staff Reporter

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Farogh Naseem has been reappointed as Federal Minister of Law Friday.
According to details, President Arif Alvi administered oath to the minister, who had resigned to represent Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa in Supreme Court (SC) in tenure extension case.
On Thursday, SC had given a six-month conditional extension to General Qamar Javed Bajwa in his services as COAS, and ordered the government to complete the required legislation within six months for extension/appointment of an army chief.
A three-member bench comprising of Chief Justice Asif Saeed Khosa, Justice Mian Mazhar Alam Khan Miankhel and Justice Syed Mansoor Ali Shah announced short verdict on a petition filed by The Jurists Foundation through its Chairman Riaz Rahi against extension of tenure of Chief of the army staff. Earlier, the apex court had suspended the COAS tenure extension, citing a series of irregularities and ordering the government to produce legal provisions and detailed arguments on the reasoning behind the move.
