ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, rejected the appointment Syed Deedar Hussain Shah as the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman on Monday.

This came in response to President Asif Ali Zardari’s letter asking Nisar for his suggestion on the appointment.

In the letter, Nisar stated that he had already rejected Deedar Hussain’s appointment last year.

The opposition leader was of the view that the appointment had already been declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court.

He stated that protests held by Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in Sindh have further made it a controversial issue.

Nisar proposed that a panel of candidates should be formed so that a suitable appointment can be made.

    I don’t see any valid reason in this reply. Usual “mein na manoon” rhetoric. PML-N is being buried under the avalanche of Ch. Nisar’s inadequacies.Recommend

    Ch. Nisar Sahib, do you want Mr. Saif ur Rehman to come back and finish the job from where he left ????? I think it is delaying tactics so that cases against your leadership may remain under the carpet. Once again SC has come to the rescue of your men both in politics and Tax thieves in the Media Houses. Why don’t you and your henchmen in SC straight away furnish the names of their own choice so that all may know the real picture in this game of appointments …….Recommend
