LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry will continue to remain a Provisional Constitution Order (PCO) judge if he does not take a fresh oath under the constitution, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman said on Monday. A private TV channel cited him as saying that he had not been taken into confidence over the reinstatement of the CJP. He claimed he had merely been a spectator in the decision taken by the government. He said that while the judicial crisis had been ostensibly resolved, there were still several glaring contradictions.


He told reporters at his residence in Dera Ismail Khan the judicial crisis would have been resolved more comprehensively if the government had accepted his proposal. He also said that accepting Abdul Hameed Dogar as CJP until March 21, 2009 endorsed the November 3, 2007 emergency imposed by General (r) Pervez Musharraf.
