The President approved the aforesaid appointments under Article 175 of the Constitution, acting on the recommendations of the Judicial Commission of Pakistan. Chief Justice of Pakistan, Gulzar Ahmed has summoned a meeting of the Judicial Commission of Pakistan JCP on January 6 to reconsider the elevation of Lahore High Court Judge Justice Ayesha Malik to the Supreme Court. The JCP meeting will be presided over by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed. According to Article 175-A of the constitution, the JCP, after confirmation, will propose the names to a parliamentary committee for the appointment of superior judges.

However, Justice Maqbool Baqar, Justice Sardar Tariq Masood and Justice (retd) Dost Muhammad Khan and the Pakistan Bar Council representative in the JCP Akhtar Hussain had opposed it.
