Government, Army reach consensus on the next COAS
LAHORE (Saeed Chaudhry) - Lieutenant General Qamar Javed Bajwa is very likely to be appointed as the new Chief of Army Staff while Lieutenant General Zubair Mahmood Hayat is expected to be the new Chairman of Joint Chief of Staff Committee (CJCSC), sources told Daily Pakistan.

Sources confirmed that the decision was made after a consensus was reached between Government and military leadership.

The ongoing battle against the menace of terrorism across the country was the main ground on which the important decision was made, sources told Daily Pakistan. The sources further added that the recommended officials would prove to be the most adequate persons for the task.

Lt. Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa was previously Commander of important Rawalpindi Corps and was presently employed as Inspector General Training and Evaluation, at GHQ, a position General Raheel Sharif held before becoming the army chief.

Lt Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat is the second in the seniority list of lieutenant generals. He was currently serving as Chief of General Staff (CGS) in GHQ.

Lt Gen Zubair served as Bahawalpur Corps Commander and Director-General of the Strategic Plans Division. He also served as General Officer Commanding, Sialkot. Lt Gen Zubair was due to retire on January 13, 2017.

The present Army Chief Gen. Raheel Sharif will retire on Nov 28 this year and Gen. Rashad Mahmood, who is the existing Chairman Joint Chief of Staff Committee, will be retiring a day prior to the Army Chief, on Nov 27.
