ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi appointed Mansoor Usman Awan as new Attorney General for Pakistan (AGP) after accepting Barrister Shehzad Ata Elahi’s resignation, who left post after less than two months in office.

Appointment was approved by President under Article 100 of Constitution, statement from Aiwan-e-Sadar said, adding that his status will be equal to federal Minister. Elahi was picked for coveted post after Awan last year declined to become Attorney General as despite President approving his appointment he was not officially notified. Government then faced embarrassment from judiciary for not filling this important constitutional post after ex-AGP Ashtar Ausaf tendered his resignation in October last year.

Awan holds Master of Laws (LLM) degree from Harvard Law School, USA and Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from University of Punjab where he stood first.
