ISLAMABAD: General Head Quarter (GHQ) of Pakistan Army through a tweet confirmed that a summary for the selection of Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) has been forwarded to the Prime Minister office on Tuesday.

The Inter Service Public Relations (ISPR) tweet said, “GHQ has forwarded the summary for Selection of CJCSC and COAS, containing names of 6 senior most Lt Gens to MoD.”

After this confirmation from the Ary Head Quarter, Defence Minister Khawaja Asif has also confirmed regarding the summery on Wednesday that Prime Minister’s office received. The Defence Minister said that the remaining procedure to appoint the CJCSC and COAS would also be completed soon.

According to the reports from Islamabad, the government officials of the PM’s House and the Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said the summary regarding the COAS’s appointment had not been received so far.

After receiving the summary from the GHQ, the Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif was expected to choose the new military chief within the next 24 hours. “It will take a total of 48 hours,” Khawaja Asif said.
