Good morning, *|MERGE1|*. It’s September 10. Have a blessed Friday! 
Hey, I am Sajjal and have recently joined The Current and will be working on the newsletter with Laila.  I’ll share my millennial life happenings with you on alternate days. Now let’s get down to business. 

Today, I did a story about Murad Raas’ warning to Aitchison for not implementing the Single National Curriculum and seriously I feel that instead of advancing further, our government is clearly pulling us back. If you want more information, check out the story.

Rain is expected today in Lahore, Islamabad and Peshawar, it will be cloudy in Karachi and sunny in Quetta.

It’s a dark day: Justice Ayesha not elevated to the Supreme Court

The Judicial Commission of Pakistan (JCP) has not approved the nomination of Justice Ayesha Malik as a Supreme Court (SC) judge.

“It is a dark day because first-time nominee of a woman judge’s elevation to the Supreme Court could not be approved,” senior journalist Hasnaat Malik told The Current.

He also added that if Justice Ayesha is not elevated to the SC, then she will become Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court. “Justice Ayesha’s name can be initiated anytime for the SC,” said Hasnaat.

What happened? 

Lawyers across the country recorded their protest today, their main concern being that Supreme Court judges should be appointed on the basis of seniority.

‘Puppet PM will lose the govt if we get rid of puppet Buzdar in Punjab’: Bilawal

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that Prime Minister Imran Khan himself will lose the government if the Opposition de-seats puppet Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar in Punjab.

Accusation against PML-N 

We need to save Punjab together,” said Bilawal reminding the PML-N that if they are not ready, the people will not forgive them.

“It is not possible that you [PML-N] talk about respecting the vote and then you boycott the by-elections and the Senate elections. Because of you, people are angry with us as well. If you talk about respecting the power of the vote, then you need to start practising that power yourself as well,” he added. 

Fazl-ur-Rehman’s reply 

On the other hand, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazl-ur-Rehman accused Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari of making a deal with the establishment.

Fazl, blaming Bilawal for the failure of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), claimed: “The deal was previously offered to us but we didn’t agree to it.”

‘I apologise to the Afghan people’: Ashraf Ghani

Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, in a statement posted on Twitter, said: “It is with deep and profound regret that my own chapter ended in similar tragedy to my predecessors — without ensuring stability and prosperity. I apologise to the Afghan people that I could not make it end differently.”

Addressing rumours that he fled the country with four cars and a helicopter full of cash, he said, “These charges are completely and categorically false.”

“Corruption is a plague that has crippled our country for decades, and fighting corruption has been a central focus of my efforts as president,” he said, adding that he and his wife were “scrupulous in our personal finances”.

He appreciated the sacrifices the Afghans had made over the past 40 years of war in their country.

After years of shying away from the question, Germany’s Angela Merkel declares ‘yes, I am a feminist’

Merkel is now taking a clear stance on feminism in her last days in office.

“Essentially, it’s about the fact that men and women are equal, in the sense of participation in society and in life in general. And in that sense I can say: Yes, I’m a feminist,” she stated. 
At the event, Germany’s first female chancellor was more candid and admitted her reticent approach from the past.

“I was a bit shyer when I said it. But it’s more thought-out now. And in that sense, I can say that we should all be feminists,” she added. 

About the upcoming elections: 

Germany will head to the polls on September 26 to elect a new parliament that will pick Merkel’s successor as chancellor.

In recent weeks, Merkel has emphatically endorsed Christian Democratic Union (CDU) candidate Armin Laschet to succeed her.
