Sherry Rehman criticizes PTI for meddling in military appointments

Federal Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman criticized PTI on Friday for attempting to “interfere” in the selection of the next military commander.

Rehman criticized the PTI for meeting with President Alvi to discuss important military appointments while speaking to the National Assembly.

To maintain the impression that they (the PTI) are still important, “they have even made the president controversial… they called the president to Lahore yesterday.”

According to her, PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari used to receive notifications from the courts prohibiting him from meeting with party members when he was president but PTI attempted to meddle in a political subject, and they attempted to meddle in an important appointment.

Rehman continued, “Imran and his party have decided to hold a long march which has no purpose or end in these trying times when Pakistan is in the midst of a huge climate crisis and millions of people are suffering.”

Rehman further asserted that Imran’s long march was being questioned around the world. “They want to know what his issue is and why he is organizing a march at a time when the nation is facing significant challenges.”

General Asim Munir was named the country’s new army chief a day earlier, while Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza was chosen to lead the Joint Chiefs of Staff committee.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif made the new appointments and then a summary of their selections was forwarded to President Arif Alvi for confirmation.
