ISLAMABAD: A 12-member parliamentary committee, headed by federal minister Syed Khurshid Shah, reached consensus on Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G Ebrahim’s name out of six nominees as the head of the Election Commission of Pakistan, Express News reported on Monday.
Ebrahim was one of the three names nominated by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). Justice (retd) Nasim Sikander and acting CEC Justice Shakirullah Jan were the other two nominated by the party.
The government had recommended Justice (retd) Munir A Sheikh, Justice (retd) Amirulmulk Mengal and Justice (retd) Qurban Ali.
Justice Ebrahim’s selection documents will be forwarded to Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.
Note: I Know he is a "consensus" candidate. And PML N and PPP have agreed on his name. Even PTI raised no Objections. But In my opinion he is biased candidate and will allow prepoll rigging and let the ruling Coalition get away with Murder.
Unlike Shakirullah Jan he will not ( and much like ECP Justice (retd) Hamid Ali Mirza ) he will not get the list ready in time and may even Gerrymander constituencies.
Mark my words this was a big win for PPP. This guy is a partisan hack. PPP may have just won the elections.
Its strictly my opinion but I dont trust this guy at all. I will list my reason in another post.
