Refuse to become Supreme Court judgesFormer Attorney General Makhdoom Ali Khan have refused to become Supreme Court (SC) judges after the government asked them to fill the vacant posts in the apex court. A high level meeting was held in Islamabad in which President Pervez Musharraf’s legal advisers suggested the vacant seats in the Supreme Court should be filled as soon as possible, the Geo News reported. The legal advisers also advised Musharraf to get his eligibility case decided from the 11-member Supreme Court bench as it was before the proclamation of emergency to avoid future legal or constitutional hassles, the channel reported. Earlier, a majority of the senior judges in Pakistan have rejected the Provisional Constitution Order (PCO) issued by Musharraf, and refused to take oath under the new quasi-martial law emergency set-up.
