ISLAMABAD: The Prime Minister Office has received a summary from the Ministry of Defence for the appointment of director-general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (DG ISI), sources informed Geo News Wednesday.

Sources within the government also told Geo News that three names have been proposed in the summary, including Corps Commander Karachi Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmad Anjum; Chief of Logistics Staff, GHQ, Lt Gen Saqib Mehmood; and Corps Commander Quetta Lt Gen Sarfaraz Ali.

The development came hours after Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry had announced that consultation between Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa regarding the appointment of DG ISI has been completed.

aking to his official Twitter handle, the federal minister wrote: "Consultations between the prime minister and the army chief on the appointment of a new DG ISI have been completed and the process for the new appointment has begun."


He further said the civil and military leadership has yet again proved that all institutions are united for the country's stability, integrity and development.
'Ideal relationship with military'
On Tuesday, during a post-cabinet press conference in Islamabad, the federal minister had said that during the cabinet meeting — chaired by Imran Khan — the issue of DG ISI was also discussed.
"A long meeting took place between PM Imran Khan and the army chief last night," Chaudhry had said, adding that the government shares "an ideal relationship with the military."
"The prime minister shares a very close relationship with the army chief," he had said. "The Prime Minister's Office will never take a step that would hurt the reputation of the army."
The minister had said that the government will adopt a legal procedure to appoint the DG ISI and will ensure all constitutional requirements are fulfilled in this regard.
"It is the prerogative of the prime minister to appoint the DG ISI," he said.
‘PM wanted Lt Gen Faiz Hameed to stay as DG ISI’
A day prior, PTI's Chief Whip in the National Assembly Amir Dogar had said that PM Imran Khan wanted Lt Gen Faiz Hameed to continue as the director-general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) amid the evolving situation in Afghanistan.
"The prime minister wanted Lt Gen Faiz Hameed to serve for a few more months," Dogar, who is also the Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Affairs had said during an interview with a private TV channel.
The chief whip had said the premier, during Tuesday's cabinet meeting, had mentioned that respect for the army and for the prime minister go hand in hand, adding the government wants to be on the same page with all the institutions.
The prime minister, according to Dogar, had noted that Lt Gen Nadeem Anjum was also a good professional soldier.
Dogar had said three to five names will be put forward before the prime minister and he will pick the new DG ISI from them. "The prime minister said he has no egoistical concerns (when it comes to the appointment)."

The frick are extensions for? Should be outlawed.
I think IK administration wants to see service chiefs tenure to be same as PM tenure. I made a thread/comment why this should be a while back.

And if I remember correctly recently there was a bill moved in Parliament to extend the tenure of service chiefs and make it same as PM.

Extensions should be banned --- those who give them and take them, like rishwat, should be ridiculed. A law should be passed that ends all possibility of extensions forever.

This personality worship nonsense, whether at the ISI or GHQ, is further eroding these institutions. Not happy about this circus at all.

Imran khan is a "Bonga" who takes "urta teer" unnecessarily.
Imran khan doesn't know the inner working of intelligence and should not interface.

By the looks of it, screw up by ISPR? Without the signature of PM under dotted lines, how the announcement was made?

Hope it's just a unintentional messup, nothing more.
