Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has announced that the National Assembly will be dissolved on August 9. On Thursday, he addressed a dinner hosted in honor of the parliamentarians of allied parties in Islamabad. During his speech, he stated that despite facing criticism for 15 months, his government managed to save the country.

“We are now confident that, through our sacrifices in politics, we have pulled the country out of turmoil. It was a challenging time, with threats from all sides,” he remarked.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister mentioned that in the coming days, his government will be dissolved, and efforts are underway to form an acceptable coalition setup for everyone.

“We aim to create a favorable and acceptable coalition setup for all,” he added.

Shahbaz Sharif also highlighted that it was through the cooperation of the allied government that they managed to handle every difficulty. He acknowledged that the agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) was not an easy task and was akin to crossing a tightrope.

This announcement comes as a significant development in Pakistan’s political landscape, and it sets the stage for political maneuvering and negotiations to form a new government after the dissolution of the National Assembly.
