Shahbaz

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Tuesday rejected a petition challenging the appointment of Opposition Leader in National Assembly (NA) Shahbaz Sharif as chairman of Public Accounts Committee (PAC).
A divisional bench of IHC, headed by Chief Justice Athar Minallah, announced the decision which was reserved by the court on December 31. The bench declared the petition as non-maintainable.
The petitioner had stated in his plea that Shahbaz’s appointment as the chairman of the committee is illegal, adding that producing the PML-N leader’s production orders was a violation of accountability laws.
