ISLAMABAD : Abdul Hafeez Sheikh, the prime minister’s adviser on finance, has been removed from the National Finance Commission. The court submitted a notification of this to the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday. The notification appointing him to the commission, which had been challenged in court, has now been withdrawn, Attorney-General Khalid Jawed Khan said. But PML-N MNA Mohsin Shahnawaz Ranjha argued that their objection was that the NFC had been formed without consulting them. I also had issues with the last NFC notification, said the attorney-general. The court praised Khan for his comments and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb said not every attorney-general speaks like this. Ranjha said their victory is that the government has to work according to the Constitution. The PML-N had challenged Sheikh being able to chair the NFC as the finance adviser. Traditionally, the country’s finance minister chairs the NFC.
