LHC moved against possible dissolution of PA

25

An application has been filed in the Lahore High Court to stop the possible dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.

Namdar Ali, a citizen of Toba Sheikh Singh, filed the petition. In the petition, Imran Khan, Punjab Government, Chief Election Commissioner, Punjab Governor and Chief Minister have been made parties through the Principal Secretary. It was argued in the petition that Imran Khan announced the dissolution of the Punjab and KPK Assemblies on December 17, which is against the constitutional autonomy of the provinces.

The petition stated that in an interview, Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi gave a statement to fulfil the constitutional time of the assembly.

The Punjab chief minister also made a statement about signing the summary of the dissolution of the assembly a month ago. The petition said the dissolution of the Assembly on Imran Khan’s request will be against the constitution and law.

The petitioner said Imran Khan wanted to dissolve the Punjab Assembly for his own interests, which will harm the country and prayed to the court to issue an order to stop the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.
