Reddy to be new Law Commission chairman

Retired Supreme Court Judge P V Reddy is going to be the new chairman of the Law Commission of India.

According to reliable sources, the Law Ministry has cleared his name to head the Law Commission, which is without chairman since July 2009, when the term of Justice A R Lakshmanan expired.

Union Law Minister M Veerappa Moily had earlier tried to persuade Justice B N Srikrishna to take charge of the Law Commission.

Justice Srikrishna, a retired Supreme Court Judge, however, declined the offer.

Justice Srikrishna is presently heading the five-member Telangana Commission.

Justice Reddy, who had delivered the verdict in Parliament Attack case, retired in 2005.
