    Iftikhar Chaudhry launches his party

    ISLAMABAD: Former chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry launched on Friday a political party namely ‘Pakistan Justice Democratic Critic Party (PJDCP)’.

    Speaking at the launching ceremony, he said the PJDCP would welcome only non-corrupt people, adding that the party’s aim would be to solve people’s problems.

    Mr Chaudhry, 66, said his party would work on a 25-point agenda, including in the sectors of health and education and land reforms. Provision of justice to the common man would be the basic manifesto of his party, he added.

    The ceremony was attended by lawyers, civil society activists and others.

    Earlier, the ex-CJ had said that he would announce his political party and manifesto on Dec 25.

    Iftikhar Chaudhry was appointed 18th chief justice of Pakistan by then president retired Gen Pervez Musharraf on June 30, 2005.

    In 2007 Mr Musharraf asked Iftikhar Chaudhry to resign, but he refused and the conflict between the two led to the latter’s suspension on Nov 3, 2007.

    He was reinstated on March 22, 2009 and retired on Dec 11, 2013.

    Iftikhar Chaudhry was one of those whom Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan had accused of having played a key role in alleged rigging in the 2003 general elections.

    Power is a powerful aphrodisiac. Shame most in Pakistan that have had a sniff off it can not go graciously. I think he is past his sell by date and should go and relax a bit
