Is the CIA answerable to President of US or the Pentagon? The head of CIA is selected by President based on recommendation of the DNI and by a majority vote from senate. Here we have boot polishers of military saying that a whole institute should be brought under COAS and taken away from the head of country - the PM, why?
This process is a whole lot simpler, its just that civilian oversight is not bearable for a certain section and they will always work with that agenda.
Ideally, the chief of ISI should be a civilian, why do we need a military general to run a spy agency? What expertise would he have that a civilian wont?
It's more complicated than that. It was founded by a civilian order as a tri-services (military based) intel agency that would serve the office of the PM.

But the PM's office also has a parallel intel agency --- the IB, which is quite large and in recent times has been improving.

This is what causes the entire mess. The CIA is an entirely civilian agency from its outset and therefore has nothing to do with the Pentagon, which manages military affairs. The CIA is also an exclusively external agency.

Pakistan's model is much more convoluted and needs reform. We need a single external agency, hybrid mil-civ, and a single internal agency. The reason that it was a blessing that the ISI was never under full civilian control was that we had leaders like Zardari and Nawaz who would have filled it with their chamchaz and used it exclusively for political purposes and to wind down important ops because of Indian and US pressure. You need patriotic and hawkish civilian leaders to have a civ-run premier agency --- we didn't have such leaders.

IK is right here. Constitutionally its IK's perogative to appoint DG ISI with consultation of army chief. Bajwa did not consult IK.

Also Lt Gen needs to be corps commander for minimum of 6 months before he can be considered for post of army chief. There are still more than 13 months left to make new army chief in case if Faiz Hamid needs to become chief.
bajwa met imran and discussed the fiaz wala dileama, since last year, but nishai, forgets every meeting, every word and kept dragging it,, amir dogar, already spilled the beans,
I think nomination is good but Khan probably wants extension for General faiz. Imagine general faiz getting extension as ISI chief 😂. Maryam Nawaz will get chronic diarrhoea. In my opinion considering the baD optics Khan should let it go.
boy faiz, is already tarnished goods, ,, he will be gone to peshwar next week, and wilnot be made NEXT COAS<
the gujjarkhan man will head ISI, from karachi,

all the aalims , and aleems will be tortured in basements,
for there doll,s show,

Pakistan is truly unique. It is no North Korea, and it surely is not USA either. But then, every country must do what suits its own particular systems and circumstances, whatever that might entail.
if this inflation trend continues any further, under IMF_PTI partnership,
we will be somalia in 2025
He is hiding behind the excuse of 3 names. Actually he wants to exercise his authority.
wait till this, skirmish is over,..imran will sign on the dotted name and line,

BUT..........




then see what kind of L is goining up imran,s rear from bajwa,
How many "Supreme Commanders" have completed their tenure in elected office to date in Pakistan? It may be the other way around.
SUPREME COMMANDER!

Wouldn't it be easy to constitute a 3 member committee chaired by the defence minister with cjsc and sec defence also being member of that and let it interview senior most candidates from the three services while p.m adress addresses the inflation and other economic issues?


Why make a mountain out of a molehill and waste so much office hours ? There are plenty of competent officers among the three services so just do it already.

This is a very important selection and must be made very carefully and with diligence. Yes the PM, the elected officer of the nation should have an input, but allowing corrupt civilians to interfere in the affair of defense of the nation is a risky business.

What is the latest updates?

If the intention is to only appoint a competent officer from the tri services its no brainer as it could be done in one sitting because all the officers who made this far are ofcourse the brightest of the bunch. But, when personal interests and occultist superstitions are at stake then old habits die hard , be it Miyan sb or khan sb.
