After the bifurcation of the state, Syed Abdul Nazir will take charge as the third governor of AP. Abdul Nazir hails from Karnataka. He served as a Supreme Court judge and retired last month. Abdul Nazir has a special recognition as a judge. He was directly promoted to the Supreme Court of the country without serving as the Chief Justice of the High Court. Abdul Nazir is the third person to be promoted in this way.
Moreover, he retired as a justice in January. Another feature is that he is taking oath as the governor of the state at the end of February within a gap of one month. Nazir’s track record as a Supreme Court judge is crucial. As a judge of the Supreme Court, he gave important judgments in many cases. Cases like Ayodhya-Babri Masjid dispute, triple talaq, demonetisation and right to privacy were heard. Justice Abdul Nazeer was the only minority judge in the multi-bench hearing these cases.
