PTI leaders are urging party workers and supporters to prepare for the protest outside the Punjab Governor House. The protest will take place today at 5:00 pm.

The political crisis has deepened in Punjab after the governor and PA speaker rejected each other’s rulings regarding the no-trust voting and summoning of a special session for vote of confidence today.

As a result, PTI announced the protest outside the Governor’s House at 5pm today to stop the governor from taking any ‘unconstitutional step’. To clarify, PML-N has announced that the Punjab governor will denotify CM Parvez Elahi over his failure to obtain the vote of confidence from the House by 4pm today.
