How many powers of a station commander would be curtailed and how much power the civilian public representatives elected by the voters would get is yet to be known, The News daily reported.
According to the 2002 ordinance, the station commander of a cantonment board was also empowered to appoint an equal number of officers as members of the board as those who were elected by the people.
The report said due to this it was the station commander who called the shots instead of the public representatives because he always had a majority on the board.
The station commander also had the veto power over the board as per Musharraf's ordinance.
Sharif would soon be presented a summary of the draft seeking amendments in the Cantonment Ordinance 2002 in line with Article 140 A of the constitution, the report said.
Empowering the public representatives in cantonment boards is a real test case for Sharif, the report said.
