ISLAMABAD: After Umar Ata Bandial hung up his robes the previous day, Supreme Court Judge Justice Qazi Faez took Isa’s oath as the 29th chief justice of the Republic of Pakistan (CJP) on Sunday.

The oath was administered during a ceremony at Islamabad’s President House by President Dr. Arif Alvi. Attendees at the ceremony included senators, foreign ambassadors, key military authorities, caretaker federal ministers, caretaker prime minister of Pakistan Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar, and other government officials and dignitaries.

But Justice Isa’s time as the nation’s chief justice will be limited because he is scheduled to step down from the office on October 25, 2024.

On September 5, 2014, he was sworn in as a judge of the supreme court. Due to a presidential reference brought against him in 2019, the senior puisne judge has not been assigned any constitutional cases for the last three years.

The nation’s newest chief justice was born in Quetta on October 26, 1959. His father, the late Qazi Mohammad Isa, was a close friend and important leader of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s Pakistan Movement.

Justice Isa attended the Karachi Grammar School for his O and A levels after finishing his first schooling in Quetta. After that, he relocated to London to continue his legal studies at the Inns of Court School of Law in order to pass the bar professional examination. imran khan

On January 30, 1985, the newly appointed chief justice began serving on the Balochistan High Court. In March of 1998, he was admitted as a Supreme Court counsel. On November 3, 2007, during the Pervez Musharraf administration, an emergency was declared. Justice Isa chose not to appear before justices who had taken an oath in accordance with the Provisional Constitution Order (PCO).

Simultaneously, the judges of the Balochistan High Court resigned following the Supreme Court’s annulment of the November 3 judgment, and on August 5, 2009, Justice Isa was appointed directly as a provincial high court judge.

Before receiving appointments as a judge in the Supreme Court and the Balochistan High Court, he was involved in the legal profession for 27 years. During this time, he was called upon by several high courts, the Supreme Court, and international arbitration organizations for help in a variety of challenging issues.
