Justice Qazi Faez Isa has been sworn in as the 29th chief justice of Pakistan. The ceremony took place in Islamabad and was attended by President Arif Alvi, caretaker Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar, Chief of Army Staff Asim Munir, and other top court judges. Justice Isa’s appointment was read out, and he took the oath of office. Justice Isa was born in Quetta and comes from a family with a strong background in the Pakistan Movement. He has a long career in law and has served as a judge of the Supreme Court of Pakistan since 2014.
As the new chief justice, Justice Isa faces several challenges. One challenge is to restore the court’s credibility and unity, so that its judgments are not questioned. There have been concerns about the formation of benches consisting of like-minded judges. On his first day, Justice Isa will take up a bill that deals with the formation of benches on constitutional matters. He will also have to handle the controversy regarding general elections and maintain a working relationship with the executive. Additionally, Justice Isa will need to address the large number of pending cases.
Overall, Justice Isa’s tenure as chief justice will be closely watched to see how he handles these challenges and maintains the credibility of the court.
