As General Qamar Javed Bajwa is slated to retire next week, Lieutenant General Asim Munir has been appointed as Pakistan’s new Army Chief after days of speculation. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif named Munir the next chief of Pakistan’s Army on Thursday. Munir, a four-star ranking officer, was serving as the quartermaster in the Pakistan Army before his appointment as Army chief. Lt Gen Munir joined the military after completing the Officers Training School programme in Mangla and his first commissioning was in the 23rd Battalion of the Frontier Force Regiment. He was then promoted to the rank of Lieutenant General in September 2018 and was subsequently appointed as DG ISI.
