COAS urged to contest General Elections 2018
Mysterious banners with pictures of the Army Chief General Raheel Sharif have once again emerged in Rawalpindi. However, this time the message is different altogether.
“No extension but deduction,” said the banners in bold English, urging the army chief — who is due to retire November 29th — to participate in the next general election in 2018. The text of the poster urges parliament to amend a law which bars army officials from taking part in political activities for at least two years after retirement.
