Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif has said that PML-N sees Army Act Amendment in a positive way.
Nawaz Sharif in his message to senior party leader Khawaja Asif directed him to convene a parliamentary party meeting of the PML-N before the start of National Assembly session today (Friday) for consultation.
The former premier has given the schedule till January 15 to approve the said amendment.
Sharif further said in his letter that neglecting the rules of procedure in this important issue will not help anyone and added that undue hurry in passage of Army Act Amendment will give an impression that the parliament has become a rubber stamp.
Earlier on Thursday, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had decided to vote in favour of crucial amendments to the Constitution and the Army Act to pave the way for a three-year extension in Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s tenure.
