Despite the political turmoil following the fall of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s federal government as Imran Khan was ousted from power through a vote of no-confidence motion, President Dr Arif Ali will continue to hold office for the time being and does not intend to resign.

Party’s close aides said that the president will continue performing his constitutional duties as per usual and that the PTI leadership has issued no orders, nor considered his resignation.

Sources further claimed that if PTI chief and former premier Imran Khan, in consultation with party leaders, asked President Alvi to resign then he may consider leaving the office.

If any potential federal government will take the constitutional route to oust the president, then the party will make a decision based on the circumstances.

There is a possibility that Arif Alvi might remain in office under the new potential prime minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Those close to the president said that he is currently observing the ongoing political situation. He will decide his position as per the decision of the PTI leadership, keeping his political affiliations in view.
