Option of governor rule could be exercised


Adviser to the Prime Minister for Political and Public Affairs and National Heritage, Engr Amir Muqam here Thursday asserted that by-election would be held in case of dissolution of Punjab and Khyber Pakthunkhwa assemblies and possibility of imposition of governor rule.

Addressing a big public gathering here, Amir Muqam said that general elections would not be held on the unjustified demand or wishes of PTI Chief Imran Khan.

He reiterated that general elections would be held on time in accordance with constitution and laws, adding the governments in centre and other provinces would continue to perform functions in case of dissolution of KP and Punjab assemblies.

He said the option of governor rule could be exercised in KP and Punjab if these provinces did not function in accordance to the constitution or dissolve prematurely.—APP
