We hope the new leadership of the armed forces of Pakistan will play its constitutional role, says PTI
Reactions from politicians and political parties started pouring in following the appointments of Lt Gen Syed Asim Munir as the new Chief of Army Staff (COAS) and Lt Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza as the next Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC).
"The statement regarding the appointment of Chief of Staff has come to light and the PTI believes it is ready to take measures in the best interest of the nation’s security and stability of state institutions," the former ruling party's central media department said in a statement following the key appointments in the military.
It said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is of the view that events of the last eight months have caused a deep divide across the country and measures taken during this time have caused extensive damage to the country and its state institutions.

"Human Rights in Pakistan have been grossly violated, journalists and media have been and continue to be subjected to torture and harassment; and Arshad Sharif, one of the leading journalists in the country, has been assassinated. The Imported government and the state, in pursuit of pushing the leader of the largest political party against the wall, has plunged the country into the worst form of political instability that has essentially sent the economy into a tailspin," it said.
"We hope that the new leadership of the armed forces of Pakistan will play its constitutional role so constitutional rights and democracy in the country are strengthened, and people’s rights to elect a new leadership through fresh elections would be recognised."
It said that the people of Pakistan expect the armed forces, while dealing with an array of external threats, would stay out of the politics of domestic affairs and that the rights of political parties would not be infringed.
"Free, fair and transparent early elections are the only solution to the prevailing crisis in the country and we believe that all individuals as well as institutions who feel the pain of the nation, must play their role in ensuring this democratic future," it added.
It also congratulated General Sahir Shamshad Mirza and General Syed Asim Munir for their appointments.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, taking to Twitter, congratulated Gen Asim Munir and Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza.
"My congratulations and best wishes to the Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee-designate Lt General Sahir Shamshad Mirza and Chief of the Army Staff-designate Lt General Asim Munir on their appointment," he wrote.
