To the first two posters, your comments are the height of ignorance. This CJ is NOT AN Appointee. The law makes the most senior Justice as CJP period. No, none what so ever appointment influence from any one or any government. This CJP is CJP because he is the SENIOR MOST judge by law and appointment any one.

Read and learn please. I am surprised at the nonsense and ignorance of PTI (assuming the first 2 commentators are PTI supporters) from top to bottom.
