PTI to ask CM Elahi for taking vote of confidence soon

Canada Global (Web News) Fawad Chaudhry, senior vice president of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), announced on Saturday that the group would ask Punjab Chief Minister Parvez Elahi to submit a vote of confidence as soon as possible.

The PTI and Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) will make sure the vote of confidence is passed as soon as possible, the ex-information minister promised, allowing them to dissolve the legislatures.

The Lahore High Court (LHC) had reinstalled Elahi as the chief minister the day before after receiving assurances from the PML-Q leader, a close supporter of Khan, that he would not dissolve the legislature once in power.

But in an unexpected turn of events, he and the PTI both reiterated their intentions to dissolve the parliament just moments after the chief minister gave the LHC an assurance that he would not do so.

“We are sure we control the majority. If Speaker [Sibtain Khan] isn’t counted, we have the backing of 187 legislators. The chief minister has also stated that he is prepared to call for the assembly’s dissolution “added Fawad.

The PTI Chairman Imran Khan called a meeting of the party’s senior leadership today, when it was decided that the vote of confidence will occur as soon as possible, the senior vice president stated.

A PTI delegation will meet with Elahi and his son Moonis Elahi as part of the plan to talk about the choice and set a time for the chief minister to take a vote of confidence.

“Following a vote of confidence in the chief minister, the Punjab Assembly would be dissolved. 177 PTI legislators and 10 PML-Q lawmakers support Elahi “he observed
