CAOS extension is taken very calculatedly, Says PM Khan.
Federal Defence Minister Parvez Khattak presents Army amendment act 2020 in National Assembly for the purpose to pave way to extend the tenure of CAOS Qamar Javed Bajwa for next three years.
Previously Premier Khan had already extended the tenure of CAOS through a notification for next three years in August 2019 but Supreme Court abrogated it on Nov 26,2019 and order the Ruling Party to legislate in a fair way for the extension of COAS in six months.
There were rumours everywhere that the Opposition Parties (PML-N, PPPP, JUI-F and ANP) will not support the Ruling Party (PTI) in National Assembly regarding the act of extension. But all the Opposition Parties give their favour in passing the amendment act and Government warmly greet Opposition support.
Parvez Khattak also presented an NAVY and PAF amendment act separately to extend the age limit of three Chiefs — Cheif Of Army Staff, Cheif Of Air Staff and Cheif Of Naval Staff and the PM of Pakistan will have the authority to extend any of the Cheif after the completion of normal tenure (60 years) and the President Of Pakistan have the authority to to give final signal.
