ISLAMABAD: Serving Chief Justice of Pakistan will be addressing the Senate on Tuesday, first time ever in the history of the country, announced by Senate Chairman Raza Rabbani during a Senate meeting on Monday.

It is reported that for the event the upper house will be transforming itself into a committee of the whole house.

He told members that Chief Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamali had accepted an invitation to visit and present his views on judicial reforms.

Mr Rabbani said he had been invited by Supreme Court judges earlier to speak at a ceremony and had extended an invitation to the chief justice as part of his initiative of ‘intra-institutional dialogue’.
