ISLAMABAD - In the changed and charged situation after both Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) are at daggers drawn, the fate of constitutional reforms seems murky with little chances for the Constitutional Reforms Committee of the Parliament to accomplish the task in the given timeframe. Sources in the PML(N) informed TheNation that they would not support the mechanism for appointment of judges proposed in the Charter of Democracy and they would definitely demand settlement of all outstanding issues relating to the appointment and elevation of judges in the superior courts ahead of formulation of the new mechanism. The sources privy to the developments taking place on this front, informed that PML(N) had already started sidetracking from the mechanism related to the judges appointment in the superior judiciary agreed between PPP and PML(N) in the CoD. And now the current row between the Government and the judiciary has provided them an opportunity to back out from what they had committed earlier, the sources added. Earlier, there was a sharp divide among the members of the Constitutional Reforms Committee who did not want to have a parliamentary committee to oversee the working of the proposed judicial commission under the head of the incumbent Chief Justice of Pakistan for appointment of the judges in superior courts. To a question about establishment of a federal constitutional court, a PML(N) leader on condition of the anonymity said that in the given situation his party would not support even the proposed mechanism of appointments in the CoD what to speak of formation of a federal constitution court. The sources further informed that Pakistan Muslim League(Quaid), Jamaat-I-Islami and even some members from the smaller provinces had opposed the parliamentary committee to oversee the working of the judicial commission in appointment of the judges in the superior courts and said that in this way there are chances of politicisation of the whole set up of the superior judiciary. Some of these members proposed that the Parliament should be given representation in the proposed judicial commission instead of forming a separate body to oversee the working of the judicial commission. Some members of the Constitutional Reforms Committee of the Parliament suggested that equal number of MPs from both houses of the Parliament should be given in the proposed judicial commission. In CoD, it was proposed that Chief Justice of Pakistan, who had never previously taken oath under the PCO, would head judicial commission. While the chief justices of respective high courts of the four provinces, who had never taken oath under any PCO would be its members and in case chief justice of any high court had taken oath under PCO in the past then the next senior most judge, who had not taken oath under PCO would be its member. The President Supreme Court Bar Association, the Federal Minister for Law and Justice and the Attorney General of Pakistan would be its members. Vice-chairmen of Pakistan and vice-chairmen of provincial bar associations with respect to the appointment of the judges in their respective high courts would also be part of the commission. Similarly the presidents of high court bar associations of Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta would sit in the commission regarding the appointment of the judges in their respective province. The judicial commission would propose three names to the Prime Minister who after consultation with the parliamentary committee having half the members from treasury while half the members from opposition parties having representation in the committee as per their strength in the Parliament, would forward single name for appointment to the President of Pakistan. It is pertinent to mention here that the committee had already lifted the condition of the oath under PCO for judges eligibility to become member of the judicial commission.
