I tried to solve it using the Ruling Planets. While this has worked for me several times, I am unable to get a comfort on this hence working on this principle more to get that comfort.
There are four choices for the replacement of General Raheel Sharif. As usual in Pakistan you can never ignore the incumbent who may decide to topple the PM instead of retiring himself.
I asked the question on who will be the next head of Paki forces and laid out the options:
5) Raheel Sharif
The ruling planets at 2:25PM are as follows:
Asc sign lord: Saturn (10 and 11)
Moon star lord: Mer (3 and 6)
Moon sign lord: Mars (1 and 8)
Day lord: Jupiter (9 and 12)
Since one of the planets are in a retro star, we will include everyone.
The total comes to 6. The number of options are 5. 6 - 5 = 1, therefore option number 1. Therefore, Lieutenant General Javed Iqbal Ramday, commander of XXXI Corps will become the next head of Pakistani armed forces.
Lets wait for December and see if the Ruling Planets have obliged me!
