Who will be the next army chief of Pakistan? Army sent 6 names to the government, know who is at the forefront?


Army sent 6 names to the government

The Pakistan Army has said through a tweet that it has sent 6 names to the Government of Pakistan regarding the appointment of a new army chief. However, no one’s name has been mentioned in the tweet posted by the army. At the same time, Pakistan’s Defense Minister Khwaja Asif also confirmed the receipt of 6 names from the army at around 11 pm. The army said in its tweet that the names of 6 senior generals have been sent to the government. At the same time, according to the report of Pakistani newspaper Dawn, Lieutenant General Asim Munir (currently Quarter Master General), Lieutenant General Sahir Shamshad Mirza (Commander 10 Corps), Lieutenant General Azhar Abbas (Chief of General Staff), Lieutenant General Nauman Mehmood (NDU) President), Lieutenant General Faiz Hamid (Commander Bahawalpur Corps), and Lieutenant General Mohammad Amir (Commander Gujranwala Corps) have been sent to the government.

Government vs Army situation?

Pakistan’s Defense Minister Khawaja Asif, while participating in a TV talk show, said that there is no difference between the army and the government and the concerns expressed by different sections in this regard are baseless. But a day earlier, several PML-N leaders, including former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and interior minister Rana Sanaullah, had indicated that the army was stalling the process of choosing the army chief, Dawn reported. But the Defense Minister said that he has told Abbasi that his concerns will be addressed. A senior PML-N leader told Dawn on Tuesday that delay in the process of sending names could weaken the government and leave the process open to speculation and legal challenges. However, the sending of the names was confirmed by the army at around quarter to one in the late night.

Which officer whose choice?

Which officer whose choice?

According to the Pakistani constitution, only the prime minister has the prerogative to choose the army chief, so the decision rests with Shehbaz Sharif. But, Imran Khan is trying till his last breath to make his favorite person the new army chief. Imran Khan’s choice is former ISI chief Faiz Hameed, who was ousted in September last year amid controversy after visiting Afghanistan to meet Taliban officials. Faiz Hameed is considered very close to Imran Khan, but the Pakistan Army does not want any of its officers to work on the instructions of any leader, rather the Pakistan Army makes the leaders work on their instructions. At the same time, Asim Munir is said to be the first choice of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif and it is expected that Asim Munir can become the new Army Chief of Pakistan.

Who is General Asim Munir?

Who is General Asim Munir?

Infantryman Lt Gen Asim Munir topped the seniority list after Gen Bajwa. Though he is not a graduate of Pakistan Military Academy, he is a “Sword of Honour” category topper from a feeder school of the army, which has a good hold in Pakistan’s intelligence agency. In addition, it is said that he has memorized the entire Qur’an. Apart from Pakistan, he has also worked in Saudi Arabia. But, the biggest problem in front of Munir is that he is retiring two days before General Bajwa, so to make him the army chief, first he will have to extend his tenure and for this Shehbaz Sharif will have to do political maneuvering and military Acts have to be amended. Some military insiders, however, warned that nominating him would lead to catastrophic political polarization in Pakistan’s politics. At the same time, Nawaz Sharif, who has written two books on the army, has written in his book that the name of the candidate for the army chief should be removed first, which is the dark house of ‘Intelligence Agency ISI’. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see whether PM Shahbaz Sharif will bet on Asim Munir or not?

Discussions continue between the Sharif brothers

Discussions continue between the Sharif brothers

Experts in Pakistan say that the decision on the appointment of the new army chief has to be taken by a person who does not have the right to sign the appointment letter and does not even live in Pakistan, and that name is former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is the current Prime Minister. Elder brother of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and godfather of the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz), which he named after himself. Nawaz Sharif is the person who had elected Pervez Musharraf as the army chief, but had overthrown Nawaz Sharif himself. Therefore, Nawaz Sharif is in the role of an advisor to his Prime Minister brother. The special thing is that Nawaz Sharif has another record in his name. Out of the 15 army commanders of the country, he himself has nominated five. Nevertheless, his relations with the military generals deteriorated and he lost his position repeatedly. Last week, the elder Sharif called on his younger brother Prime Minister Sharif in London and discussed the political chaos in the country along with the profiles of the major candidates, sources in the prime minister’s office said.
