Fazlur Rehman rules out possibilities of elections in Punjab, KP

Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Monday ruled out the idea of elections on Monday following the dissolution of legislatures in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Fazl informed reporters while addressing the Jamiat Lawyers Wing convention at the Nishtar Hall that “there won’t be any elections in Punjab and KP after the two provincial assemblies are dissolved by the chief ministers.” However, the JUI-F leader didn’t go into further detail.

The JUI-F leader said that national politics couldn’t be subjected to someone’s whims and that those political activities should be conducted by the constitutional rules when questioned about the federal government’s resistance to holding quick elections in the nation.

He previously stated before the convention that it was the PDM’s efforts, not a plot, which led to the removal of PTI leader Imran Khan as prime minister.

According to Fazl, the PTI didn’t win an election to form the government; rather, it did it through electoral fraud. He said that he had warned in one of his lectures during the Panama Leaks era that political unpredictability would generate economic unrest and shaky national defence, and that had already occurred.

He said that the Constitution is founded on four pillars: democracy, the federal system, parliamentary democracy, and Islam.

He asserted that Pakistan could not become secular since its Constitution declared it to be an Islamic nation.

According to Fazl, Pakistan has a democratic system that requires electing representatives of the people to pass laws.
