On July 6th Nasir-ul Mulk took the oath of office as the new chief justice of the Supreme Court, succeeding the outgoing chief justice, Tassaduq Jillani.

Mr Mulk's appointment has followed the rules of seniority, with little political controversy. His predecessor, Mr Jillani, served less than a year after his appointment in December 2013 before reaching the mandatory retirement age. Mr Mulk will also serve only slightly more than a year before reaching retirement age in August 2015. At that point, he is expected to be succeeded by Jawwad Khawaja, who will serve in office for less than one month before retiring.

Like his immediate predecessor, we expect Mr Mulk to be less interventionist than Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry, a former chief justice who retired in December 2013. In remarks before his swearing-in, Mr Mulk emphasised the need for institutional harmony and suggested that the High Court should use its powers of judicial review carefully. Moreover, the short terms of Mr Mulk and his successors are likely to deny them the opportunity to use the chief justice position to pursue a particular agenda.
