Javed Iqbal steps down as NAB Chairman


Retired Justice Javed Iqbal resigned on Thursday from the position of chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) following the expiry of a recently enacted order that allowed him to remain in office until a new chief was appointed.

The previous government enacted the order to extend the term of the NAB chief for an indefinite period.

However, the new government passed a bill in the National Assembly which made the watchdog, as described by the leaders of the PTI, ineffective.

A few names are in contention to succeed Justice Javed Iqbal as NAB chairman.

Javed Iqbal was appointed bureau chief in October 2017. He carried out his duties for four years and eight months against his four-year term since the National Accountability(Amendment) Ordinance allowed him to remain in office until his successor takes over the charge.

According to a statement by NAB, Javed Iqbal not only drew up an effective anti-corruption strategy but also introduced reforms that have begun to produce results.
