A delegation would soon meet with the PML-Q leader to set a date in this regard, according to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Chaudhry Fawad Hussain, who made the announcement on Saturday. The party leadership has decided that Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi will take a vote of confidence.
Speaking to the media outside his residence in Lahore’s Zaman Park, former prime minister Imran Khan asked Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique to avoid talking about the state of the economy. “It sounds like Modi is discussing liberalism. They ought to first pay attention to their finance minister, who can inform them of the state of the economy, he continued.
He claimed that terrorists shouldn’t have reached Islamabad, which was on the verge of ceasing to exist when PTI was in power. The cost of Afghanistan’s unrest will fall on Pakistan. Our ties with Afghanistan have suffered, he insisted.
Fawad attacked Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, claiming that he is “damaging” Pakistan’s foreign policy and that the cabinet is just concerned with going abroad and getting rid of their corruption issues. “Until general elections are held, Pakistan will not be stable.”
He claimed that Imran Khan convened a meeting of the PTI’s senior leadership today in Punjab and that it was decided that CM Elahi will receive the vote of confidence.
Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi will be met by a delegation from us, and the time [for the vote of confidence] will be set. Pervaiz Elahi would receive a vote of confidence from each of our members of the Punjab Assembly, he continued.
According to Fawad, the Lahore High Court has ruled that we are free to vote on our confidence at any time.
Speaking about a recent meeting between PM Shehbaz Sharif and PML-Q leader Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, he claimed that opponents would not gain anything from such gatherings, but PTI might.
After receiving the vote of confidence, the Punjab Chief Minister, according to Fawad Chaudhry, will dissolve the Punjab Assembly. While renewing his call for immediate elections, Fawad claimed that the populace had been let down by the current leaders.
Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, had already frequently declared his intention to dissolve the Punjab and KP assemblies in an effort to put pressure on the administration to call new elections. On December 17 or December 23, he claimed, the assemblies would be dissolved. However, the provincial political disaster prevented that from happening.
Punjab Assembly Speaker Sibtain Khan rejected the notification, calling it “illegal.” Punjab Governor Balighur Rehman had called the assembly session and instructed the Chief Minister to get a vote of confidence. In response, the governor removed Mr. Elahi’s notification as chief minister of Punjab.
As a result of the Chief Minister’s motion, the Lahore High Court halted the governor’s notification. The Chief Minister was required by the court to wait to dissolve the parliament until he had a vote of confidence.
