According to sources, government s legal team will brief the spokespersons on Supreme Court (SC) verdict in Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa’s extension in tenure case. Sources further said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will also give a guideline in this regard to the spokespersons. Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb has on Friday said Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement is synonymous with showing anger after getting embarrassed. Reacting to the premier’s remarks, Marriyum Aurangzeb said no corruption cases have been proven against PML-N till date. “The Supreme Court pointed out the government’s ineptitude time and again. PM Imran is trying to put blame of his own mistakes on others as always. Pakistan is getting unsafe due to the premier’s incompetency and lies,” she said. Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday said that the Supreme Court verdict ‘must be a great disappointment to those who expected the country to be destabilised by a clash of institutions’. The premier in a series of tweets said the decision must be of special disappointment to our external enemies and mafias within mafias who have stashed their loot abroad and seek to protect this loot by destabilising the country. PM Imran was reacting to the apex court order that granted six-month conditional extension in the tenure of the Army Chief General Qamar javed Bajwa. PM further stated that 23 years ago PTI was the first Party to advocate an independent Judiciary and Rule of Law. In 2007, PTI was in the forefront of the Movement for Independence of the Judiciary and I was jailed for it, he added. He said I have the greatest respect for CJP Asif Saeed Khosa as one of the greatest Jurists produced by Pakistan. Earlier, Supreme Court granted a six-month conditional extension to incumbent General Qamar Javed Bajwa in his service as the COAS, and ordered the government to complete the required legislation within six months for extension/ appointment of an army chief.
