Islamabad (HRNW) The government has filed a review petition against the Supreme Court’s verdict in the army chief extension case. In its petition, the federal government says that the original petition challenging General Bajwa’s extension under Article 184(3) was not maintainable and the fundamental rights under articles 19-A and 27 were hardly questioned. “On grounds of public policy and pre-eminent collective conscience of the state and the society, no interference should have been made in the military dispensation or the most significant military appointment,” the petition reads. According to samaa tv The government believes that it is a settled principle of law that if no tenure or terms and conditions have been specified by the law or rules, the authority which has the power to appoint, has the power to prescribe the tenure or terms and conditions of employment. The petition also said that the Supreme Court had “stepped into show of the executive”, adding that there is nothing in the Constitution which empowers the Supreme Court to settle the tenure or terms and conditions of the army chief.
