PTI to challenge Qamar’s nomination as NAB chief

ISLAMABAD: Spokesperson Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Shireen Mazari says her party was never consulted over the appointment of Chairman NAB.

Reacting to the nomination of Choudhry Qamar Zaman as NAB chief by Prime Minister and Opposition leader in the National Assembly, she said PTI would challenge the nomination in the Supreme Court.

Shireen said Qamar Zaman was a government servant and was ineligible for any public office till the lapse of two years after retirement.

She said name of Rana Baghwan Das was dropped for the same reason.

“The appointment of Qamar Zaman will be against law and PTI will move the Supreme Court against it,” she said.

Earlier, Syed Khursid Shah claimed that he had contacted PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi two times asking him to suggest names for the NAB chief slot but PTI did not suggest any name. NNI
