‘Army chief’s repute should be spotless’: Maryam on Gen Faiz’s appointment as COAS

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz Sharif has said that the army chief of the country should have a spotless reputation.

The PML-N leader made these remarks while talking to media outside the Islamabad High Court in response to a question about Defence Minister Khawaja Asif’s statement in BBC’s latest interview, wherein he said that if former spy chief Lt. Gen. Faiz Hameed’s name was on the seniority list, it would be considered definitely.

On the other hand, Maryam Nawaz has been very critical of Lt. Gen. Faiz Hameed and even has called him out in many public gatherings.

Hameed is currently posted as the Peshawar corps commander.

Recently, while addressing a public rally in Fateh Jang, Maryam criticised Lt. Gen. Faiz and said that he was Imran’s hands through which he used to control his political opponents.

She also said that the nation looked at the army with respect and it was very important to have a worthy person as the head. While appreciating the army’s stance of being neutral, she said that it was a good thing that forces were keeping themselves away from politics.

“But there’s only man who has a problem with this … Who has gotten used to cheating, who doesn’t have feet of his own and needs support,” she said.

She further said that it suits Khan to drag institutions into politics and make them controversial.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif met his elder brother Nawaz Sharif in London along with a party delegation on Wednesday. According to reports, Nawaz had to consult the party leadership over some important issues he had reservations over, and some “big decisions” were expected at the end of the consultative meeting.

According to PML-N sources, Nawaz stressed the need for completing electoral and constitutional reforms at the earliest.
