Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif would take the vote of confidence from the National Assembly if President Arif Alvi acquires it, Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Special Assistant to PM Attaullah Tarar.
PM Shehbaz has the necessary number of support from the National Assembly to win a vote of confidence, according to a statement from the special assistant.
Attaullah Tarar stated that there will be no barriers in the way of the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.
He said, “We will not contest the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly,” adding that the party has started election preparations and that qualified candidates would be shortlisted in this respect.”
He said that it was too soon to determine if they will jointly contest the polls with ally parties but that they would fight the election with full preparedness.
The change occurs two days after Punjab Governor Baleegh-ur-Rehman received a summary from Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervez Elahi asking for the dissolution of the provincial parliament. CM Elahi had also a confidence vote from the provincial assembly before signing the dissolution.
