ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) has decided to oppose the appointment of retired Justice Syed Deedar Hussain Shah as the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman on Saturday.
President Asif Ali Zardari had earlier written a letter for consultation on Hussain's appointment to the Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and National Assembly Opposition Leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
Chaudry Nisar says he will write back to President Zardari after consultation with his party leader - Nawaz Sharif.
Sources claim that PML-N considers the appointment to be incorrect as Hussain had been a member of the Sindh assembly and is biased towards PPP.
Meanwhile, PPP has alleged that a person's eligibility should be independent of his past political affiliations.
According to reports Chaudry Nisar will be announcing his party's stance tomorrow at a press conference.
