The appointment of the army chief should be delayed until the election of the new government.

During a meeting with journalists in Bani Gala, Imran Khan said that the government should announce immediate elections and that the appointment of the army chief should be delayed until the election of the new government.

He said that he is not in favor of moving the election to March. It should be noted that while speaking on the Dunya News program ‘Dunya Kamran Khan Saath’ yesterday, when asked about the controversial statement on the appointment of the Army Chief in November, former Prime Minister Imran Khan said that elections should be conducted in a clean and transparent manner, if they win. then they can appoint a new army chief of their own accord, who can make room.

He had said that the nation in which there is merit goes up. “I have said again and again that the appointment of the Army Chief should be based on merit, but I also said that that Asif Zardari and Nawaz Sharif are not qualified for merit. Their priority is to save their money.”

He said that the Muslim League (N) has 85 seats while ours has 155. “How can a fugitive man sit outside and select the army chief?” he added.

Imran Khan referred to the ISPR statement on the controversial statement regarding the appointment of the Army Chief in the Faisalabad meeting on September 4. Why did ISPR issue a statement on the Army Chief appointment being merit-based? He said I’d talked about merit; I still say no organisation can run without it; the army is strong because of the merit system. On September 5, the Pakistan Army spokesperson said Pakistan will respond to the PTI chairman’s defamatory and unnecessary statement about the Pakistan Army’s senior leadership.

I think Imran Khan cannot force the government to delay the appoint of army chief. The government in power has constitutional right to appoint an army chief and they will do so.

His statement clearly indicates that he is still obsessed with the idea of appointing an chief who remains submissive to him.
