Prominent generals for top posts in 2019Tweet
After the retirement of Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee General Zubair Mahmood Hayat in 2019, Corps Commander Multan Lt-General Sarfraz Sattar would be on top of the seniority list for appointment as the COAS and CJCSC.
Others on the seniority list include: Lt-General Nadeem Raza, Lt-General Humayun Aziz, Lt-General Naeem Ashraf, Lt-Gen Sher Afghan and Lt-Gen Qazi Ikraam. Chief of General Staff Lt-Gen Bilal Akbar stands on seventh place on the seniority list.
The reality is quite opposite to the general impression that the political leadership selects the army chief on the basis personal desire and priorities. The political leadership picks up the chief from the options given by the army, as the process to prepare the future army leadership starts years before the final decision.
