ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court has restrained Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) from making any selections or appointments.
The three-judge bench of the Supreme Court, headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali, took up a suo motu case against the composition of the present Sindh Public Service Commission and the eligibility of its chairman and members. The chief justice took notice of an application filed by a lawyer, Muhammad Junaid Farooqi.
The chief justice remarked that prima facie incumbent chairman is not eligible for this post.
Earlier, Farooq H Naek, counsel for the chairman and Sindh Public Service Commission members, submitted a reply denying allegations levelled in the application.
“The allegations are misleading, frivolous and based on mala fide intentions.”
It was further submitted that the chairman and members of the commission were performing well and there were no allegations of misconduct or of their physical and mental incapacity to perform their duties. Similarly, Naek also furnished the criteria of each of the members as well as chairman in the reply.
“It is … prayed on behalf of the chairman and members of Sindh Public Service Commission that this court may graciously be pleased to dismiss the application in the larger interest of justice”
The hearing of case was adjourned until November 3.
