ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday dissolved the governing council of the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC), which regulates medical educational institutes across the country.
A three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Justice Mian Saqib Nisar heard the case. During the proceedings, the apex court also formed a seven-member interim committee headed by former Supreme Court Justice Shakirullah Jan.
The committee will hold fresh elections of the council and run its affairs until the new council takes charge. The Attorney General will also be a part of the set-up and will form the structure of PMDC. The process will be personally monitored by the CJP Justice Mian Saqib Nisar himself.
