Rawalpindi: Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Sunday said that all four Sharifs have been subtracted from Pakistan politics, the opposition has lost.

While addressing to media, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said that the government is not afraid of such marches announced by the Opposition.

The minister made it clear to these parties that there would be far more people to witness Pakistan Day parade in Islamabad on March 23 than the number of participants in their march.

Sheikh Rashid said that the opposition has lost and the government will complete its five-year constitutional tenure and will continue its agenda of serving the people.

He said past rulers plundered the national exchequer, while Prime Minister Imran Khan is committed to strengthen the national economy and address inflation through wise decisions.

Sheikh Rashid further said that there is no chance of any kind of a deal, there might have been some rumors about lenience in the past but not anymore.

"The opposition is dreaming about in-house change like blind whales that it is not going to happen", the interior minister added.

SC judges appointments: Justice Isa accuses ex-CJPs Nisar, Ahmed of ignoring merit

Islamabad: Justice Qazi Faez Isa, in a letter addressed to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial, has accused former top judges Saqib Nisar and Gulzar Ahmed of deliberately disregarding merit in the appointment of Supreme Court (SC) judges.

He called for more transparency in the process.

The letter, dated May 25 (Wednesday), was written by Justice Isa after "much reflection and ... because legitimate concerns of quite a few members of the Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) continue to be ignored". It added that bar associations had also expressed those concerns.

It said that an important factor in the appointment of judges to the apex court was whether they had the "requisite ability and determination to resist and repel unconstitutional acts, and the courage to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution".

Justice Isa said a longstanding practice was to appoint high court chief justices to the SC since they would have attained the necessary judicial experience, administrative understanding and skills to interact with the executive.
