Earlier in the day, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah said that appointment of new chief of army staff (COAS) will be made in the next two days, whether a summary comes or not.

This he said while talking to a private news channel. Rana Sanaullah said those who ruled the country for thirty to forty years directly or indirectly have now decided to remain “neutrals”, which is a good omen.

He said that the appointment will be made in two days whether the summary comes or not, but why it is being assumed that the summary will not come, he asked.

Moreover, Khawaja Asif said Monday that the process of the chief of army staff’s (COAS) appointment will be completed by November 25. In his informal press talk after attending a consultatory meeting at the PM House, Khawaja Asif said the process for appointment of new COAS has been initiated and will be completed by November 25.
