PTI amped up for general elections as KP Assembly gets dissolved

With the dissolutions of the assemblies of Punjab and KP, which are home to 70% of the country's population, PTI believes that Pakistan is now closer to general elections. 

In a major development, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Assembly has been dissolved on the advice of Chief Minister Mahmood Khan. With this, PTI claims that the country finally seems to be moving towards general elections.

According to the details, Governor Haji Ghulam Ali has signed the advice for the dissolution of the provincial assembly sent to him by Chief Minister Mahmood Khan a day ago. The decision to dissolve the KP Assembly was taken in the last cabinet meeting of the provincial government, held on Tuesday.

Pertinent to mention that unlike his Punjab counterpart, who didn’t sign CM Parvez Elahi’s advice, Governor Ghulam Ali moved swiftly and dissolved the provincial legislature.

Earlier, the Punjab Assembly stood dissolved constitutionally as Punjab Governor Baligh ur Rehman excused himself from signing the summary, saying he could not become a part of the process.

PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has consistently called for the local assembly to be dissolved, in a bid to force the federal government into holding snap general elections.

With the dissolutions of the assemblies of the two provinces, which are home to 70% of the country’s population, PTI believes that Pakistan is now closer to general elections.

PTI leaders have welcomed the dissolution of the KP Assembly and have expressed their readiness for the general elections.

“KP Assembly stands dissolved! Congratulations to all, one step closer to Azad Pakistan. One that is led by the people’s choice, not that of a few behind closed doors,” Sayed Zulfi Bukhari said.

“Thank God, I am grateful to the people of my constituency and to party chairman Imran Khan, who entrusted me with the responsibility of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Minister. Alhamdulillah, I tried to bring the best reforms to the education department. Inshallah Imran Khan’s songs are going public again,” Shahram Khan Tarakai said.

“See you in the elections, God willing, don’t run away,” Kamran Bangash tweeted.

“Insha Allah, Quaid Imran Khan will again be made the Prime Minister by getting a two-thirds majority,” KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan said after signing the summary for the dissolution of the KP Assembly.

Senior PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said that the dissolution of the KP Assembly will pave the way for general elections.
