On the recommendation of Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi, the provincial assembly would be dissolved today, but Punjab Governor Baligh Ur Rehman will make the final decision.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), according to sources in the media, is thinking about calling a special assembly.
Even so, the legislature will be legally dissolved even if the Punjab government does not issue a notice, and only the assembly speaker would remain in office until the next speaker is chosen.
The advice given to the governor in a signed letter states, “I, Parvez Elahi Chief Minister Punjab, hereby advise you to dissolve the provincial legislature of Punjab.”
Elahi has signed the summary, which has been given to Punjab Governor Baligh Ur Rehman. If he doesn’t sign it in the next 48 hours, the assembly would be dissolved by the Constitution, PTI leader Fawad Ch informed journalists in Lahore.
He further stated that the formation of a caretaker government would be requested in a letter to the leader of the opposition in the Punjab Assembly, Hamza Shahbaz.
Following the announcement, the governor acknowledged receiving the letter.
After a meeting between the chief minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan at the latter’s Zaman Park mansion, which was attended by senior party leaders, the coalition government of the PTI and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) resolved to dissolve the legislature.
The PTI chairman unexpectedly declared on November 26 last year that his party would leave all of the assemblies and no longer participate in “this corrupt system.”
The former prime minister made the declaration following the cancellation of his lengthy march in Rawalpindi.
