Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader and former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday said that the decision over the appointment of the Army Chief will be made on November 26.

Addressing the participants of the PML-N workers’ convention, the he stated t the Prime Minister would select the Army Chief from the summary as the right of appointing the Army Chief belongs merely to the Prime Minister. Lashing out at PTI Chief Imran Khan over the appointment of the next COAS, Abbasi claimed that he Imran wants to also interfere over the matter of the COAS, adding that whatever Imran talked about starting from the US conspiracy and so on was merely based on lies.

He further lashed out at the former premier Imran Khan stated that Imran did nothing with the exception of hurling abuses on his opponents. Defining one of the features of leader, Khaqan said that the real leader is the person who saves the country from anarchy and not hurl abuse on others.

Today, there is a dire need – in the country to live with solidarity and unity as ‘the home’ where there exist quarrels that could not last for a longer period of time. Claiming that the PML-N is the only party in the country, which could improve the country’s situation, the former prime minister Khaqan Abbasi added that the matter is just not limited to politics or getting seats. In fact, it is important to determine in which direction the country is going on.—INP
