PM Imran Says Government ‘Would Abide By’ SC Decision On COAS Extension

Share

Prime Minister Imran Khan stated on Friday during a meeting of PTI senior leaders that they would abide by the Supreme Court’s decision to extend the tenure of Chief of Army Staff Qamar Bajwa for six months.

It is further reported that the PM was ‘bashing’ opposition leaders claiming that those excepting a ‘clash of institutions’ were disappointed by the decision of the Supreme Court.

The PM did not give any guidelines to party leaders during the meeting but instead, recapped the 3 day long COAS hearing.

Khan added that the government will abide by the decision of the court and mentioned that the judiciary has not raised issues in regards to the appointment and extension of the COAS in the past.

Furthermore, Farogh Naseem took an oath to become law minister again as administered by President Arif Alvi. This development comes after he resigned from this post on Tuesday to plead the case of the COAS in the Supreme Court.

Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the government would now be passing legislature regarding the appointment and extension of army chief’s with consensus.

Additionally, he added that General Qamar Bajwa was a ‘pride of the nation’ and as a result, no one would be opposed to his extension.
