Islamabad: Pakistan’s Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday that law would be followed in the matter of the appointment of the chief of the powerful spy agency ISI, amid reports of differences between the civilian government and the army over the key appointment.

The Pakistan Army last week announced that Lt Gen Nadeem Ahmed Anjum was appointed as the new Director General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in place of Lt Gen Faiz Hameed who was appointed as Peshawar Corps Commander.

However, the notification of his appointment has not been issued by the office of Prime Minister Imran Khan, giving air to rumours about differences between the civilian government and the army over the key appointment.

As per law, the Prime Minister has the legal right and prerogative to appoint the ISI chief in consultation with the army chief. Despite speculation on social media over the delay in notification, the government kept silent on the issue until Chaudhry addressed the matter during a press conference after the meeting of the Cabinet.
