LAHORE: Former Premier of Pakistan and Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan believes Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhary Parvez Elahi will not dissolve Assembly before taking the trust vote.
“We don’t have any doubts that Elahi will dissolve the assembly of political hub Punjab but he’ll do this after collecting the vote of confidence on 11th of Jan,” said Khan, on Sunday in a press conference at his residence.
Imran Khan responded to Rana Sana Ullah comments on the dissolution of assemblies saying, “we did not dissolve assemblies immediately because allies also had to be persuaded.”
Earlier, on 22 Dec Rana Sanaullah respond to a query regarding the assembly’s dissolution, saying: “If Imran Khan wanted to dissolve Assemblies, he would not have waited for the deadline. He would have done it if he wanted to.”
“I have no connection with the establishment, but it seems the establishment is going for election by April,” said Imran Khan, adding that government will have to conduct a poll after the dissolution of two assemblies.
It does not matter if the elections are delayed due to the dissolution of the assemblies, Khan said.
Dissolution of Assemblies
Imran Khan on 17th Dec announced that the dissolution of assemblies would take place on 23 Dec, political crisis raised heads in the whole province, and members the of provincial assemblies filed a no-trust motion against CM Punjab.
The clashes didn’t stop at this point with Governor Punjab issuing a de-notifying notice against CM Elahi and asked him to cease his office. In the aftermath of these developments Elahi knocked on the gates of the Lahore High Court (LHC).
Interference of the court restored the CM to his position and Elahi also assured the court that he won’t dissolve the Assembly.
Despite ensuring the court, Elahi said the decision regarding the dissolution of the assembly is final, and Imran Khan’s decision will be fully implemented.
