SC restrains Sindh Public Service Commission from new hiring

KARACHI: The Supreme Court on Monday restrained Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) from any new hiring and recruitment till the disposal of the case in hand.

An apex court full bench headed by Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamail heard the petition challenging the qualification and appointment of Chairman SPSC.

During the hearing, the court issued directives to the Commission to stop new recruitment till the disposal of the petition. The CJP remarked that the Commission would not be allowed to work unless the court was satisfied.

Additional Advocate General Sindh told the court that if new hiring and recruitment were stopped then the system will collapse. He further apprised the court that there was a need to appoint three thousand doctors on urgent basis.  Upon this, Justice Khilji Arif Hussain remarked that whether there was any system existed in the country or not, as an incompetent man has been appointed as Chairman SPSC.

SPSC’s counsel Farooq H. Naek said that the SPSC chairman was not an incompetent man  rather he had 20 years of experience.  The court adjourned further hearing of the matter till Nov 3.
