The political crisis in Punjab has deepened as Punjab Governor Baligh-ur-Rehman has denotified Chief Minister Parvez Elahi for not seeking the vote of confidence despite his advice.

The Punjab governor shared the order on Twitter and said since CM Pervaiz Elahi has refrained from obtaining the Vote of Confidence at the appointed day and time therefore he ceases to hold office.

The denotification of Chief Minister Parvez Elahi has raised a storm and both PTI and PML-Q have rejected the Punjab Governor’s decision, calling it “illegal”. PTI and PML-Q have also decided to approach the courts against the Punjab Governor.

Fawad Chaudhry further announced that a reference will be sent against the governor to President Dr. Arif Alvi as part of proceedings to remove him from his office.

“The Punjab Governor’s notification of denotification to the Chief Minister has no legal status, Parvez Elahi and the provincial cabinet will continue to perform their duties, a reference will be sent to the president against the governor, and the action to remove him from office has been initiated,” PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry said.

“The logical conclusion of the Punjab Governor’s unconstitutional orders is just rubbish,” Asad Umar said.

“The Governor of Punjab is playing the role of a puppet and someone else is pulling the strings of the unconstitutional move. The elected Chief Minister of Pakistan’s largest province of 12 crore population cannot be unconstitutionally removed,” Farrukh Habib said.

“The notification of Governor Punjab has no legal status. Governor, don’t waste official paper and ink. The Chief Minister and the Cabinet are still in their positions,” Hammad Azhar said.

“Last night has been made perfect by those who make it perfect. The Governor of Punjab had told the CM to take a vote of confidence. The vote of confidence was to be conducted by the Speaker Punjab Assembly. In their panic, PML-N and PDM are doing stupid things,” PML-Q leader Moonis Elahi said.
