    Consensus on Chaudhry Qamar Zaman for NAB chairman – The Express Tribune

    [​IMG]

    SUKKUR: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah confirmed on Tuesday that the government and the opposition have agreed to name Major (Retd) Chaudhry Qamar Zaman as the new chairman of the anti-graft body — the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

    Zaman had previously served as the Interior Secretary in 2009. Zaman had also served as aide-de-camp (ADC) to the late General Ziaul Haq.

    Speaking to the media, Shah said that all parties were taken on board before the decision was taken, however, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) spokesperson said the party’s standpoint on the issue was not taken.

    According to Express News, the decision was taken after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif spoke to the opposition leader over the phone earlier during the day.

    The position of NAB Chairman was last occupied by Admiral (Retd) Fasih Bokhari, who was forced to vacate the position in May after the Supreme Court declared his appointment illegal.

    The government had been under pressure from the Supreme Court over the appointment of a NAB head. The apex court had also threatened the government with ‘consequences’ if it delayed the appointment.

    ---------------

    He was secretary to Ex-Interior Minister Rehman Malik. PTI is likely to reject his appointment as chairman NAB..
