LAHORE (Online) Justice (R) Syed Deedar Hussains appointment as National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman has been challenged in the Lahore High Court. The petitioner, Barrister Iqbal Jafferi, has maintained in his plea that Justice Deedar is not eligible for the post. He also termed his appointment against the Constitution, stating that according to the 18th Amendment, the Chief Justice of Pakistan and the Opposition were consulted in the process. He said fifteen clauses of the Constitution had been violated for the appointment of NAB chairman. The petitioner also maintained that he was more educated than Justice Deedar and he had formally applied for the post some 15 years ago. The federal government had appointed Justice (R) Deedar Hussain Shah as chairman NAB on Friday, a move bitterly opposed by the PML-N.
