Rasheed for treason case against coalition govt


Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Friday called for initiating treason case under Article 6 of the Constitution against the members of ruling coalition for delaying elections in Punjab.

In a series of tweets, the former interior minister said the PTI had dissolved assemblies in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa so elections could be held in 90 days. “Article 6 should be imposed on the occupant group in a week otherwise, anything can happen in the country,” he wrote.

He hoped that there would be clarity on the constitutional crisis created by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) by Monday, adding that the PML-N was not interested in holding elections even in October as it was afraid of public. “Where will the money come from for elections in October when its not available in April?” he questioned. – Staff Reporter
