READ MORESC permits govt to extend COAS General Bajwa's tenure by six months

The Supreme Court of Pakistan, last month, allowed the government to extend General Bajwa's tenure as army chief by six months and within that time bring necessary legislation to determine the COAS' appointment under article 243 of the constitution. 

The order stated: "Article 243 of the Constitution clearly mandates that the Federal Government shall have control and command of the Armed Forces and the supreme command of the Armed Forces shall vest in the President."

The court had earlier reserved its verdict in this high-profile case and directed the federal government to furnish a fresh summary of the army chief's extension of services.
