ISLAMABAD - The Parliamentary Committees decision on judges extension issue was without a constitutional reason, said the Supreme Court in its 86-page detailed judgment, released on Monday in the appointment of judges in superior courts case. On March 4, the Supreme Court had overturned the eight-member bipartisan Parliamentary Committees decision of rejecting one-year extension to service of six additional judges of the Lahore and Sindh High Courts recommended by the Judicial Commission. The Parliamentary Committee had denied extension to four additional judges of Lahore High Court - Justice Muhammad Yawar Ali, Justice Syed Mazahar Ali Akbar Naqvi, Justice Mamoon Rashid Sheikh and Justice Muhammad Farrakuh Irfan Khan on February 2, 2011 and two additional judges of SHC - Justice Mohammad Tasneem and Justice Salman Hamid - on February 22, 2011. A four-judge SC bench, comprising Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, Justice Jawwad S. Khwaja, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez, had issued the order after hearing two identical petitions challenging the PCs decision of declining the JCs recommendation. The court had directed the federal government to issue a notification endorsing extension of service of the six judges in line with the recommendations made by the Judicial Commission in meetings held last month. The constitutional petitions were filed under Article 184(3) of the 1973 Constitution challenging the Parliamentary Committee, constituted under Article 175A, decisions. Additional Attorney General K.K. Agha during the proceedings contended that the Parliamentary Committee represented the will of the Parliament thus had supremacy over all other bodies. The court observed that this view would be utterly against the newly added provisions of the Constitution itself. We cannot comprehend how this PC constituted under Article 175A, can even remotely be considered as a part of the legislature or how, for that matter, any question relating to the supremacy of the Parliament is involved in this case.
