New army chief’s name to be out by Tuesday, Wednesday: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said that the name of the new chief of army staff (COAS) would come out by Tuesday or Wednesday, The News reported Saturday.

Speaking during the Geo News programme “Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath”, the defence minister said that the process army chief’s appointment will start on Monday.

During the show, the PML-N leader said that the change of command ceremony would be held on November 29. He said the long march would suffer a serious blow the day the appointment decision was made.

COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the incumbent army chief, is set to retire later this month and he has ruled out an extension in his tenure — and so has the military.
