ISLAMABAD – Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali on Thursday took oath as the acting Chief Election Commissioner, officials said.
Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani administered the oath to Justice Jamali. Justice Jamali took over from Justice Nasirul Mulk who resigned Wednesday as acting CEC after his appointment as Chief Justice of Pakistan from July 06. Justice Jillani would retire on July 5.
The CEC’s office fell vacant when Justice (retd) Fakhruddin G Ebrahim resigned last year after the Supreme Court’s verdict of amending the schedule for presidential elections.
