With temperatures falling across Pakistan, the ruling PTI has announced the dissolution of the assemblies for Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which coincides with rising political temperatures in Punjab, the nation’s most populous area.
Fawad Chaudhry, a prominent PTI figure and close aide to Imran Khan, claimed that CM Pervaiz Elahi received the necessary 186 votes and declared that the Punjab Assembly would be dissolved today, on Thursday, in the first phase, but he also tied it to legal issues.
The PTI president demanded new elections to put an end to political uncertainty, and he continued by saying that the KP parliament would be dissolved in the second phase.
While asking them to take part in the vote of confidence, Fawad claimed that PML-N leaders choose to leave the assembly proceedings.
Early on Thursday, Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi was successful in getting a vote of confidence from the provincial legislature.
In the meantime, the opposition abstained from the midnight meeting and declared that it would sue to overturn the late-night trust vote.
