Army chief’s retirement

Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s emphatic pronouncement that he will retire in five weeks and will not accept an extension should put an end to debate and discussion about the army chief’s nomination. Since there have been multiple instances of extensions in the office of the army head, rumours circulate whenever an army chief’s tenure expires. Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa paid a visit to the National Defense University, where he spoke to participants at the 24th National Security Workshop on the many problems and countermeasures facing national security. He will leave in five weeks and will not accept the extension. The name of the next army leader will be released in a few weeks, added General Qamar Javed Bajwa in his remarks, adding the army would no longer be involved in politics.

The prime minister must select one of the first seven names on the seniority list of lieutenant generals, according to the norms and procedures for the appointment of “are stated.” There is no room for doubt in this area. By saying that he won’t continue in his position and rejecting any political role for the army, the army commander has actually bolstered the constitution and the rule of law in the nation. In the context of the challenges faced by the country, it is the main responsibility of the soldiers of Pakistan to be vigilant at all times on the borders and to fulfil the requirements of homeland defense.

On the front of national security, there are several barriers and defences. To safeguard and advance Pakistan’s national interests. Politicians should now cease anticipating the army’s involvement in civic matters. The army’s main function is to defend the country, except in the most severe cases of natural disasters and disruptions of peace, when the constitution permits the civil authorities to request the army’s assistance in dealing with these circumstances. An effort should be made to ensure that the civic institutions designed to handle natural disasters and uphold peace and order carry out their duty with diligence so that the Pakistan Army is away from civil affairs and is always united in fulfilling the requirements of national defense.
