RAWALPINDI - Federal Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed Saturday said that legislation on tenure of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) would be passed easily by the parliament.

Talking to media persons after attending oath-taking ceremony of Anjuman-e-Tajran Printing Press, Sheikh Rashid expressed the hope that all the issues related to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) would be settled soon, adding that the government would complete its tenure.
