Answering a question, the AGP said though his parents have political background, but he is no political affiliation with any of the party.

Earlier this week, AGP Khalid Jawed had excused from representing the federation in Justice Qazi Faez Isa reference in the Supreme Court.

Khan was appointed by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government as the new Attorney General after Anwar Mansoor Khan resigned from the office earlier on Thursday.

The Pakistan Bar Council had demanded Mansoor’s resignation over some comments he made regarding Supreme Court judges, for which he had been reprimanded by the court as well.
