ISLAMABAD: PML-N senior leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has warned that reluctance in sending a much-anticipated summary for the coveted post is a “violation of the constitution”.
Speaking to a private TV channel, the former prime minister stressed the concerned authorities to send the summary at the earliest so that the prime minister could decide on it swiftly.
“Entire Pakistan is awaiting who will become the new army chief,” he added.
It would not be appropriate if the name of an incompetent person is included in the summary of the army chief candidates, he said, adding that in such case, the matter could be challenged in court.
It is pertinent to mention here that the formal process for appointing a new army chief starts with the General Headquarters sending a list of the senior-most generals to the prime minister via the defence ministry.
