ISLAMABAD: Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Syed Khursheed Ahmed Shah Thursday said that opposition parties would soon recommend the name for new Chairman National Accountability of Bureau (NAB).
“I have contacted leaders of other political parties and will soon be recommending name of an appropriate person for appointment as new Chairman NAB,” he told reporters at the Parliament House. For the purpose, Khursheed Shah said, he had so far contacted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P).
He hoped that opposition parties would definitely evolve consensus on the name of person who will have no political affiliation and his past would be transparent. “The new Chairman should be dedicated to eradicate corruption, as NAB has an important role in country’s politics,” Khursheed Shah remarked.
To a question, Khursheed Shah said the current Chairman NAB Qamar Zaman Chaudhry was controversial from day one. For appointment of new NAB Chief, Opposition Leader said during his meeting with the Prime Minister he had not lodged any complaint. “Rather, the purpose of the meeting was to reach a consensus on the name of new Chairman NAB.”
