Last week, Justice Ahmed Ali Sheikh had refused to take oath as an ad hoc judge, it was stated in a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Gulzar Ahmed.

The Judicial Commission of Pakistan, in a meeting presided over by the CJP, had decided by a majority of five to four that the SHC chief justice would be invited to become an ad hoc judge of the Supreme Court for a period of one year provided he accorded his consent.

Meanwhile, the newly-elevated judge of the Sindh High Court Justice Muhammad Ali Mazhar took oath as the judge of the Supreme Court.
