Islamic Code for Governance after The Exalted Prophet

Salamun Alaikum!

My Uncle (being a retired Army Colonel) has the following question that I copy below:

As you say that Quran is a complete code of life (zabta e Hayat) thus does not require any Prophet for its practical manifestation to the people in the shape of Sunnah and Hadith and (Quran) is thus sufficient for one's own interpretation. Then what is the system given by Quran for the selection of Khalifa or Iman after the Prophet? This is the most important strategic matter which must be addressed in Quran as in the absence of same, Muslim Ummah will go astray and will resort to civil wars...(which actually happened after the demise of the Prophet and the Fitna which started in the times of Uthman will so remain till the end of the world as mentioned by Dr. Taha Hussain, Dr. Abdul Hamid, both renouned scholars of Islamic History who completed their PhDs from French and Harward Universities respectively).

Col. Khalid Masood Khan

I would appreciate if highly knowledgeable students of The Quran such as Dr. Shabbir Ahmed, Brother Jawaid Ahmed also take part in answering the question.

I know the answer but being a nephew, I don't want to seem arrogant. The question is how do we satisfy people who have been fed with falsified history?
