Bilawal’s suggestion to Imran

As the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) moves closer to resignation, Pakistan Peoples Party leader Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and PML-Chaudhry Q’s Shujaat Hussain have urged Imran Khan to return to parliament, not only to spare him from “victimisation,” but also to represent the voters who elected them. They said that they and the country would be unable to save him if he stayed on his current course. Mr Khan must understand the necessity of all parties working together to lift Pakistan out of its current economic and political quagmire. Mr Khan, on the other hand, is not convinced. He claims that when the two assemblies are disbanded, nationwide elections must be held. Chief Minister Parvez Elahi has also stated that he will dissolve the assembly following the vote of confidence on January 11.

However, the federal ruling coalition has stated that there would be no elections with threats and abuses, therefore Imran Khan’s only option is to attend and speak in the assembly. Following Imran Khan’s decision to dissolve the Punjab Assembly, the federal government sent a constitutional request to the governor of Punjab, asking Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervez Elahi to call a vote of confidence in the assembly. The chief secretary of Punjab de-notified the chief minister of Punjab on the governor’s directives, which Chaudhry Parvez Elahi refused and petitioned the court for proceedings. Because the country is currently experiencing the biggest political, economic, and energy crises in its history, the existing assemblies should be permitted to complete their terms so that the system may continue. Imran Khan should also abandon his politics of chaos and slander and sit in the assembly and talk to the government about the election, which the government has also requested, which is welcome, and the Election Commission has also stated. has decided that if the assemblies are dissolved, there will be elections for the entire term of the assemblies, rather than by-elections. As a result, it is preferable to let the assembly’ terms expire and prepare for the next elections.
