A sensible guy. Should be better than our last few CJs. Some of them were certifiably insane.

Nothing worse than a 'sensible' (status quo-loving) guy.

The "don't rock the boat" approach is what has screwed Pakistan over the decades. We need bold, visionary, even crazy people who shake the system, hold ALL institutions (including their own and the army) ruthlessly accountable, take aggressive suo moto notices against corruption and nepotism in government and by politicians, etc.

I know what you mean --- but I pray for a crazy guy. Pakistan needs a rude awakening. Whatever is happening now just won't cut it.

I guess Isa will be that X factor that Pakistan has needed for a very long time. I am not aware of the incoming CJ but have heard that he has been a 'Yes Man' to the CJ which may not be a strong suit. But it yet remains to be seen how his brief tenure will be.

Additionally, it makes me wonder why it is ok for the senior most Judge of the Supreme Court to be elevated to CJ but the same is not valid for senior most judges of High Courts to be appointed as Justices of the Supreme Court. The case of nominated Judge Ayesha Malik is a prime example; why was she proposed by the CJ, I mean whatever was the criteria in his mind and process of nomination, through which many of the Judges senior to her were ignored.

All of these pakistani high court judges , lawyers,generals,police officers and politicians are of the same race aka far and alien to 98 % of their subjects. Nothing is going to change in this set up, pakistan need theocracy which is governed by Gods Law ( the supremE law ) . Western system is not the cure for the ilness of paksitani society where there is such class divide/ segregation and any sharabis cleanshave "educated " wadera, elite,chaudary ,politician can get away with rape or even murder . Most of these higher up are for sale , some for money for their daughters/wifes ngo, some for their family visa and some for their post retirement job in western countries. Only ulemas and ppl who are religiously inclined , are trustworthy in pakistan because of their ideology! i hope someone comes and take care of these currupt cleanshave "educated" lots ruling the nations .
