ISLAMABAD: In a late-night development and hours after the Judicial Commission of Pakistan’s meeting on Monday, Federal Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar tendered his resignation.

According to some TV channels, Mr Tarar tendered his resignation citing ‘anti-establishment slogans’ raised at the Asma Jahangir Conference in Lahore on Sunday.

Mr Tarar was chief guest at the Asma Jahangir Conference where some of the participants chanted slogans against the establishment during his speech.

The law minister was also said to be under immense pressure for casting his vote in favour of some ‘junior judges’, along with Chief Justice of Pakistan Umar Ata Bandial, who were being elevated to the Supreme Court.

However, his resignation has so far not been accepted.
