Assemblies not to be broken: Governor

Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif has said that after the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly, a summary will be sent to the governor to dissolve the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Assembly.

The provincial government spokesperson said that the advice to dissolve the K-P Assembly will be given to the governor two days later.

The Punjab Assembly will be dissolved in 48 hours after which KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan will send the advice to the governor for the dissolution of the provincial assembly, he said.

He also said that there was no problem in KP, but they would wait for the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.

He added that after the dissolution of the KP Assembly, a letter will also be written to the leader of the opposition, Akram Khan Durrani, for the appointment of a caretaker chief minister.

Barrister Saif said, “Now, the federal government has no choice but to hold fresh elections.”

On the other hand, KP Governor Haji Ghulam Ali said that he still stood by his stance that assemblies should not be broken.

“The news about dissolving the Punjab Assembly was reported. It will be abusive to both the people and the country. We should show patience and tolerance considering the conditions of the country.
