On Thursday, the Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) had approved the elevation of Lahore High Court Justice Ayesha A. Malik to the Supreme Court. She will be the country’s first-ever female judge to sit on the Supreme court. A JCP meeting chaired by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed was held during which Justice Malik’s elevation was approved by a majority of five votes against four. Last year, a lack of consensus during an extended meeting of the JCP on Sept 9 had forced the committee to dismiss her elevation.
