ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has welcomed the proposal of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman should be appointed by the judiciary.
Talking to reporters after a meeting of the party’s core committee at his Banigala residence here on Monday, he said NAB could not become a “credible” institution without being given under the judiciary.
“We have been demanding for long that NAB should be made an independent institution under the Supreme Court. I welcome the statement made by the interior minister that the NAB chief should be appointed by the SC,” he said while criticising the bureau for its alleged failure to take action against what he called the corrupt mafia.
Flanked by PTI vice-chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi and secretary general Jahangir Tareen, Mr Khan urged the Supreme Court to immediately constitute a new bench and
