Details indicate that President Arif Alvi has approved the summary of the cabinet’s recommendation to promote the three judges to the Supreme Court. The Chief Justice of the Islamabad High Court, Justice Amir Farooq, was also appointed by the President (IHC). Along with Justice Syed Hassan Azhar Rizvi and Justice Shahid Waheed, Justice Athar Minallah was promoted to the Supreme Court.
The Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) recommended that Chief Justice of the International Humanitarian Court Athar Minallah be elevated to the Supreme Court, and the legislative committee for judicial appointments confirmed this recommendation on November 4 during an extraordinary session.

After Justice Minallah took the oath to serve on the Supreme Court, President Arif Alvi swore in Justice Aamer Farooq to succeed him as the chief justice of the IHC.

As the senior puisne judge, the JCP earlier this month authorized Justice Farooq’s appointment as the IHC Chief Justice. A week following JCP’s confirmation of Justice Minallah’s promotion, there was a confirmation. JCP proposed the judges be appointed and confirmed in accordance with Article 175-A of the Constitution, and the Parliamentary Committee on Judges Appointment supports these recommendations.
