F.P. Report

LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers from Multan on Tuesday voiced their concern with former prime minister Imran Khan over the assemblies  dissolution on Dec 23.


The legislators voiced their worries at a meeting with the PTI chairman, saying if the caretaker set-up would last for a while, they [the legislators] might be the target of political vendetta. In response, the deposed premier offered them (the legislators) encouragement by saying, “With the dissolution of assembly, you people should not worry. The dissolution of the assemblies should actually be the PDM’s fear.”


Mr Khan reiterated the importance of the general election in pulling the nation out of its current predicament, emphasising that political stability was absolutely necessary for economic stability. In reference to the Punjab chief minister, Mr Khan said, “Parvez Elahi has his own opinion since he has his own party. However, he stands by us.”


On the other hand, the PTI lawmakers made the decision to confirm their resignations before the National Assembly (NA) speaker in connection with the dissolution of assemblies.


The 123 PTI members will appear before Raja Pervaiz Ashraf to confirm their resignations as lawmakers, according to sources with knowledge of the situation. The PTI legislators will meet for this purpose on December 22 at Islamabad’s KP House.
