Pakistan Army (Amendment) Act, 2020 regarding re-appointment/ extension of Chief of Army Staff was received with open arms and passed without hurdles by members of both lower and upper house of the parliament and become an act by getting Presidential assent. All this happened after Supreme Court of Pakistan in a case challenging extension of Chief of Army Staff, Qamar Javed Bajwa extended his tenure as COAS for 6 months by the exercise of the buried ‘Doctrine of Necessity’, once again. It was held that there is a lack of statutory provision in the law providing for the extension of the military chief and the parliament should formulate laws and redefine the Army’s Act in order to avoid legal absurdities in the future.
