On Tuesday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan refuted claims that he had discussed giving the current Chief of Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa, a longer term.

In an interview with journalists in Islamabad, Khan claimed, "I never spoke about prolonging the army commander's term. I have spoken about deferring the selection of an army head until the next elections.

He further stated that the next army chief should be chosen by the incoming government. The former prime minister stated, "I never specified who should be the army head. I always emphasized that an army chief's recruitment be done on merit, just as a chief judge should be nominated on merit.

The ex-prime minister announced that he would issue a demand for the coalition government to be overthrown in September.The minus-one formula is being imposed. The coalition administration is aware that they cannot triumph in Imran Khan's presence, the former prime minister stated.

The PTI chairman stated that he did not say anything to try to get the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) to publish a statement over Khan's "anti-military comments" made during his party's political gathering in Faisalabad.

Khan poked fun at PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif by saying that he will be eagerly awaited when he comes to Pakistan. Khan said, "Two families should not choose the name of an army head."
