ISLAMABAD: The government and opposition have agreed on the appointment of Justice (retd) Rana Bhagwandas as the NAB chairman and Ishaq Dar has convinced the opposition to draft an ordinance for his appointment and submit the same to the government.

The draft ordinance will amend the FPSC Act to remove the FPSC chairman's designation from the category of Service of Pakistan. According to the existing law, the FPSC chairman cannot hold another office after retirement.

Opposition leader Khursheed Shah has confirmed that the draft ordinance has been submitted to the government and after Eid the government and opposition will hold a dialogue on the issue.

Before going to Saudi Arabia, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had telephoned Khursheed Shah and offered condolence on his sister's death and expressed his wish to discuss with him the issue of the NAB chairman's appointment after his return.

The opposition leader had put up the names of Justice (retd) Rana Bhagwandas and Justice (retd) Sardar Raza Khan while the government proposed the names of Justice (retd) Rehmat Jaffery and Hassan Zaheer for the office of NAB chairman.
