ISLAMABAD The members of Parliamentary Committee on Constitutional Reforms could not evolve consensus on defining the modus operandi for the appointment of judges in superior courts as some of them opposed the formation of Parliamentary Committee to oversee the working of the Judicial Commission in the appointment of judges. Sources informed TheNation that in the view of some of the committee members the involvement of Parliament in the appointment process would politicise the whole exercise of judges appointment in superior courts and suggested that instead of formation of a Parliamentary Committee some members of the Parliament could be made part of the Judicial Commission, the forum for filling the vacancies in superior judiciary. The sources in the committee informed that Pakistan Muslim League (Quaid) members were against the role of Parliamentary Committee in the appointment of judges giving the reason that this move would politicise the whole process. The Jamaat-I-Islami members of the committee also raised voice against formation of a Parliamentary Committee as proposed in the Charter of Democracy to oversee the working of the Judicial Commission. The sources said that Pakistan Peoples Party members wanted to get the mechanism, proposed in the Charter of Democracy for appointment of judges, fully implemented while the parties, which were not signatories of the CoD, opposed the move of formation of Parliamentary Committee to be part of the mechanism for the appointments of judges. Even PML-N members were sidetracking from their stand, and are opposed to the role of the Parliament in the appointment of judges in superior courts. One of the members of the committee informed TheNation on condition of anonymity that the way the committee had relaxed the condition on judges, who had taken oath under PCO in the past, to become the member or chairman of the Judicial Commission, the committee should also introduce other changes as well and instead of forming the Parliamentary Committee, MPs representation in the proposed Judicial Commission could be made. The sources in the committee further informed that now it was PML (N) and not PPP, which was backing out from implementation of CoD in true letter and spirit. The sources in PML-N said that in the given circumstances where the PPP government was not coming up with their hands clean on the appointment in superior judiciary, they would not let them achieve their targets of intimidating the superior judiciary through the Constitutional Reforms Committee. However, some other members of the committee were of the view that the committee would thrash out differences on the issue of appointment of judges in its Monday meeting.
