Whether power of appointment/nomination includes power to revoke?
If a person is given power (by way of a deed) to appoint or nominate any person of his choice, whether that power is enough to revoke an already appointed person? Pls give opinion in this regard with judgments.

Yes,it will include the power to revoke the existing appointment / nomination, provided the person granting such power by execution of deed had such a power at the time of execution of deed and that original appointee / nominee has not acquired an irrevocable right to be appointed / to continue as such.
If it was not so , the power given to him becomes almost meaningless.
