IS­LAM­ABAD

Chief Jus­tice Iftikhar Muham­mad Chaudhry said Thurs­day that the Supreme Court re­served the ju­di­cial author­ity to take notice of any is­sue. Ad­dress­ing a full court ses­sion, Chief Jus­tice Iftikhar said no in­sti­tu­tion in the coun­try had the right to in­ter­fere in an­other in­sti­tu­tion's do­main. He said the ju­di­ciary was a role model for other state in­sti­tu­tions.

The chief jus­tice added that no in­sti­tu­tion, on its own, could es­tab­lish good gov­er­nance in the coun­try.

He showed sat­is­fac­tion over the pace with which cases were be­ing con­cluded by the courts. He said peo­ple's faith in the ju­di­ciary has been re­stored and peo­ple were con­sult­ing to the courts more than ever be­fore. He said the judges' hard work was lead­ing to bet­ter re­sults for the coun­try. Chief Jus­tice Iftikhar said he had sent rec­om­men­da­tions to the fed­er­a­tion to sort out the is­sue of short­age of judges in the coun­try.
