A senior cabinet member insisted that “everything will be decided” on Monday. One section believes that the decision should be reviewed after taking Justice (retd) Sheikh into confidence. However, the other side believes that it will not be in the interest of former apex court judge as well as the government to involve in this controversy. However, Justice (retd) Sheikh urged the government not to nominate him because he was the chairman of the Insaf Lawyers Forum—the legal wing of ruling party. It is also learnt that former apex court judge recommended the name of Zahid F Ibrahim, son of renowned lawyer Fakhruddin G Ibrahim.
