General Nadeem Raza assumes charge as CJCSC

RAWALPINDI – General Nadeem Raza has assumed the charge of Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) at the JS Headquarters on Wednesday.

In a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), General Nadeem Raza took charge as CJCSC during a ceremony at Joint Staff Headquarters.

On November 22, Prime Minister Imran Khan had appointed Lt General Nadeem Raza as new Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC).

Lt Gen Raza is a highly decorated military officer who became the Chief of General Staff last year. The post is considered extremely prestigious among the armed forces since the officer occupying it gets to work closely with the country’s powerful army chief.

According to the local media, Lt Gen Raza was commissioned in the infantry in September 1985. He will now be running the topmost military office in the country, serving as an adviser to the government on defense-related matters and coordinating with the Pakistan Navy and Air Force.
