LAHORE The vacancies created by the expulsion of PPP-affiliated law officers in the Punjab Advocate General Office would be soon filled by PML-N lawyers. Sources confided to The Nation that after 13 law officer of the Pakistan Peoples Party had been turned out of the existing number of 57 in all four stations of the province, the AG office has left with 44 law officers. The sources added in view of the existing number of 24 judges in the Lahore High Court, which is markedly below the sanctioned strength of 60, 44 law officers may be sufficient for the time being. However it is expected that by the start of the next month, about 16 to 20 new judges would be inducted in the Lahore High Court and also AG office would need more law officers. Insiders in the party said that the PML-N-affiliated lawyers had started striving for getting the job at this lucrative office. However, the party leadership has decided to get law officer each from every district which hitherto has been going on without representation. They noted lawyers performance in the partys organisational matters would also be counted for merit in addition to their own qualification. They said a three-member committee of the party would be set up soon to conduct interviews for law officers in the Punjab.
