The caretaker government has decided to form a Constitutional Committee headed by the Chief Justice. A draft ordinance has already been approved. The Committee would be responsible for recommending candidates for appointment to the Constitutional posts which includes Judges, the Attorney-General, Auditor and Comptroller General, Election Commissioner etc. Normally, as per the Constitution the President appoints by consultation with the Prime Minister or Chief Adviser. The ordinance apparently puts up a new mechanism. How it conforms with the Constitution is unclear. Although most practitioners and civil society members have hailed the decision, they are concerned that the inclusion of the Chief Justice as the Chairman could make him controversial.
