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.
