Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry's Biography

Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry (Urdu: افتخار محمّد چودھری) (born 12 December 1948) is the current Chief Justice of Pakistan. He became chief justice of Pakistan's Supreme Court in 2005 and soon became not only a central figure in the nation's political struggles but an icon to the country's legal profession and others campaigning for the rule of law. He was suspended by President Pervez Musharraf on 9 March 2007, when he refused to oblige Musharraf by refusing to resign. He was later reinstated by Supreme Court of Pakistan on 20 July 2007.After having been elected as President for second term by the Parliament, Musharraf in November 2007 pre-empted an impending court decision against his re-election and suspended the constitution and declared a state of emergency. Justice Chaudhry convened a seven-member bench which issued an interim order against this action.
