‘SC verdict ‘great disappointment’ to those expecting destabilisation due to clash of institutions’

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that the Supreme Court’s verdict regarding extension in Army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s tenure must be "a great disappointment to those who expected the country to be destabilised by a clash of institutions".


“Mafias who have stashed their loot abroad and seek to protect this loot by destabilising the country,” said the PM while reacting to top court verdict to grant a six-month conditional approval for Bajwa to stay in his office.

“For the record, 23 yrs ago we were the first Party to advocate an independent Judiciary and Rule of Law. In 2007, PTI was in the forefront of the Movement for Independence of the Judiciary & I was jailed for it,” he added in a series of tweets.

Earlier, the SC allowed the federal government to grant a six-month extension to General Bajwa.

In its short order the apex court directed the government to bring necessary legislation within six months' time.
