Good governance not possible without observing merit: CJ.

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry has said that if promotions, deputations and transfers are not made on merit then there could not be good governance in the country and the dream of its prosperity and development could not be achieved. He made these remarks on Friday during the hearing of illegal promotions, deputations and transfers of grade 20 and 21 officers case. The case was heard by a three-judge bench comprising Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry and Justice Sheikh Azmat Saeed. The Chief Justice remarked that the bureaucracy could not flourish without the promoting merit. The CJ maintained that the previous government awarded officers by giving them undue promotions which resulted in harming the basic structure of the government. Justice Ijaz Ahmed Chaudhry remarked that the previous government created seats for 37 officers on March 11 while there was no such seat for them.
The Chief Justice maintained that there should be a clear cut procedure for the appointment and promotions on the higher scales. Later, the court reserved judgement of the case which would be announced later on.
