Search for chairman NAB...By Tajammal

19 December, 2013

The chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Qamar Zaman Chaudhry has been held responsible by the Supreme Court (SC) of Pakistan for abetting crime in the National Insurance Company Limited (NICL) case, along with other officers. Reportedly, Mr Chaudhry has gone on long leave. He is unlikely to rejoin. Needless to say, the chairman NAB was appointed after a protracted consultation between the prime minister and leader of the opposition. By and large, the people were happy that a well-reputed bureaucrat and a thorough gentleman had been appointed to this job of high responsibility. His predecessor, Mr Fasih Bukhari, was also kicked out unceremoniously.

As previous experience shows, it is difficult to appoint a new chairman this early on to such an important constitutional vacancy. If at all the prime minister and the leader of the opposition agree on someone, the gentleman so chosen will think at least twice before agreeing to take up the job. To resolve this issue it is proposed that the constitution and relevant law may be so amended that the superior judiciary may be a third party along with the prime minister and leader of the opposition in the selection of the chairman of NAB. Hopefully, this will be a permanent solution.
