Gen Sharif was 3rd on the seniority list and the Pak media didn’t really think he would be picked – shows unpredictability of selection

Farrukh Khan Pitafi

Well congrats Lt Gen Raheel Sharif. To be honest I was hoping to see Gen Haroon as the next chief. But as I said PM’s prerogative!

Old joke abt “iss mulk mein sirf do sharif, Babra Sharif aur Nawaz Sharif” will now need to be revised

Has anyone ever described an incoming COAS as ‘thoroughly unprofessional and politically ambitious’ at the time of his appointment?

Sanam Taseer

Junior General made COA. that usually turns out really well.

Syed Talat Hussain

PM Sharif handpicks Gen Sharif, learns nothing from past experience.

Wajahat S. Khan

COAS-select Raheel Sharif also has the rare & coveted legacy angle covered as the brother of Nishan-e-Haider Shabbir Sharif Shaheed

Nusrat Javeed

Raheel Sharif’s appointment is definitely a good news. A thorough soldier with no interest in things political.

@haroonsardar NS lucky. No Leo to stop him this time. COAS RS is Libra and libra r decent, witty, intelligent, lucky but lack decision making

Asad Umar

The new COAS is the brother of a great son of pakistan. Hope he can serve the nation well as a professional army chief
