PESHAWAR: Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan declared on Saturday that the provincial assembly will be dissolved today.
Khan announced that this was his “final address” at a news conference in Peshawar since the K-P assembly will be dissolved today.
He added that Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), would not make any more recommendations but would rather announce the time the K-P governor would get the summary for the dissolution.
Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif, Special Assistant to the Chief Minister on Information, stated earlier this week that the K-P Assembly will be dissolved once the Punjab Assembly has been dissolved.
The governor will receive the recommendation to dissolve the assembly two days after that, according to a representative for the province administration.
Mahmood Khan, the chief minister of K-P, had previously stated that the Punjab Parliament will be dissolved in 48 hours, following which he would advise the governor to dissolve the provincial assembly. He added that there was no issue in K-P and that they would wait till the Punjab Assembly was dissolved.
He stated that a letter requesting the appointment of a caretaker chief minister will also be sent to Akram Khan Durrani, the head of the opposition, following the dissolution of the K-P Assembly.
