Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday took to Twitter and said, “The process of consultation between Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa over the appointment of the new Director-General (DG) of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) has been completed and the process for the new appointment is now underway.”
“The civil-military leadership has once again proven that all institutions are united for the country’s stability, integrity, and progress,” said Fawad.
Fawad on Tuesday addressed a press conference. “PM Khan is the authority in appointing the DG ISI,” further adding that “all legal methods will be adopted in the appointment of the new director-general”.
It has been a week since Lieutenant (Lt) General Nadeem Ahmed Anjum was appointed as DG ISI, the post previously held by Lt Gen Faiz Hameed.
