Chief Justice of Pakistan Asif Saeed Khosa has stamped Govt. legal team as incompetent and failed to perform its function. On the other hand Imran Khan appreciated his legal team’s performance and now it is apprehended that Govt will again commit a blunder to resolve Gen. Bajwa extension issue. It will add insult to the injury.
Hashmat Habib President Tehreek-e-Tahafuz-e-Adlia said this and expressed his displeasure on mishandling the extension of COAS. He said Supreme Court was not properly assisted by incompetent team which resulted in a decision which is not being understood by the Govt.
The judgment is clear basically it requires amendment in Article-243 of constitution which need 2/3 majority therefore entire exercise will prove in futile, he said.
The senior lawyer said Pak Army Act, rules and regulations were sufficient to resolve this issue without disturbing the constitution or bringing new legislation. He said Pakistan Army Act and rules provide authority to the Federal Govt to extend retirement date and for that purpose no time limit is given. However, as per law the extension should not be beyond superannuation, he added.
