Pakistan PM Imran Khan advises president to dissolve Assembly

Pakistan PM Imran Khan advises president to dissolve Assembly, With the Deputy Speaker rejecting the no-confidence motion against him, Pakistan PM Imran Khan said he has sent a proposal to the president to dissolve the assemblies.

The no-confidence resolution against Prime Minister Imran Khan was rejected by the Deputy Speaker of Pakistan’s National Assembly on Sunday, citing violations of the country’s Constitution and norms.

Imran Khan told the public shortly after the no-trust vote against him was overturned that he had written President Arif Alvi a request to dissolve the assemblies, effectively paving the door for early elections in Pakistan.

“I have written to the President to dissolve the assemblies. There should be elections in a democratic way. I call upon the people of Pakistan to prepare for elections,” Khan said.

Khan, triumphant, reaffirmed his assertion that the vote of no confidence was part of a foreign plot to depose him and damage Pakistan’s democracy.

“Prepare for elections. No corrupt forces will decide what the future of the country will be. When the assemblies will be dissolved, the procedure for the next elections and the caretaker government will begin,” he added.

PM Imran Khan was spared from a bid to depose him as Pakistan’s prime minister when the deputy speaker of parliament declared a no-confidence resolution invalid.

After the Deputy Speaker denied the no-confidence resolution, the opposition will organise a dharna in the National Assembly, according to Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

After a no-confidence motion against him was defeated in the National Assembly citing security concerns, Pakistan’s prime minister called for new elections.

Pakistan’s National Assembly was disbanded, and a much-anticipated trust vote against Prime Minister Imran Khan was postponed once more.

PM Imran Khan is not present in the Assembly,

Khan, who came to power in 2018, is at a crossroads in his political career, as his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party has lost its majority following defections. Two of his associated parties also abandoned him and joined the ranks of the resurgent Opposition.

The no-trust resolution against the besieged prime minister was dismissed by Pakistan National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri, who was chairing the key session of the lower House. He said it was against Article 5 of the Constitution.

Opposition lawmakers protested the decision, while appearing confident in the victory of the no-trust motion as they made their way to Parliament House.

The Opposition parties need 172 members of the 342-member National Assembly to depose Khan, and they have already claimed the support of 177 members, far more than the number required to do so.
