Governor dissolves KP assembly

Governor Haji Ghulam signs CM Mehmood Khan’s Summary

The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly has dissolved as Governor Haji Ghulam Ali signed Chief Minister Mehmood Khan’s summary for the dissolution.

The action came days after the Punjab Assembly was dissolved. PTI Chairman Imran Khan had threatened to leave both of the legislatures where he now holds office to distance himself from the current corrupt political system.
