    By the time current chief retires, I believe Lt Gen Haroon (Ex Commander SSG) would be the senior most general, and if Nawaz does what he said, that senior most will get the job, he may be the one. But you never know.

    He is the Chief of Logistics staff eh?

    The outgoing chief's opinion will also be taken, and I don't think his opinion will favor him. Since a person who is going to be th end next potentiql COAS in eyes of current one doesn't get sent as a CLS. Corp Commanders, CGS, DG ISI etc are the people who are in running IMO, what do you think? They are more senior type positions.

    Just as a Brig commanding a brigade in Swat has more chances of being promoted than somebody who is serving as a Commandant in some school in Murree...

    As for the predictions, the seniority thing IMO is utter rubbish by Nawaz Sharif. The man I see fit for the role is Lt Gen Tariq khan, the one who is at favourable odds at the moment though is Lt Gen Rashid Mehmood.

    Only time will tell though.

    He led the most successful military operations during swat operations and in other regions, responsible for the largest heli assault operation in history of Pakistan, he was previously commanding Bahawalpur Corps, and he is left the senior most after the first 3 retire.

    "Top sources reveal that by October this year, Lt Gen Muhammad Haroon Aslam would be on top of the seniority list of three-star generals. Lt Gen Haroon Aslam is also a commando and he had served in the Military Operations Directorate and with his new appointment as the CLS after serving as corps commander, he would be ready for promotion as a four-star general."

    So his chances are good, either as Chief or may be CJCSC provided no one from navy or airforce is brought in.

    On the basis of his past experience and seniority, he should be the top contender...but CLS position for a former SSG boss and CC...hmmm.

    I would prefer somebody who is well familiar with the war on terror, and him along with Tariq Khan seem the top contenders on that criteria.

    Yeah, late next year.

    Before him there are 2 retirement cycles I believe, one of this year, and another in the middle of next year. He comes after those 2.

    I am not in favor of Tariq, as he is a very pro american general, you can say in a way an american stooge, i don't have any positive for him.

    Gen haroon is more favorable, he has been in this war, he fought it on the front line with his troops, whatever experience Tariq has, i believe Gen Haroon has no less.

    Well yeah, fatman17 yesterday did comment that his pro Americanism might be his downfall.

    It will depend on what policy Nawaz Sharif formulates for US, the same old ball licking or will he try and stand up.
