CM Mahmood KPK

Mahmood Khan, the chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), announced on Thursday that the PTI has decided to delay dissolving the provincial assemblies until it is known what would happen to the Punjab Assembly.
The change occurs a day before the KP and Punjab assembly are supposed to be dissolved. Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), declared on December 17 that the two provincial assemblies where his party now holds power will be dissolved on December 23 for new elections.
Mahmood stated today at a press conference outside the Hayatabad Sports Complex in Peshawar that Imran Khan will first decide the destiny of the Punjab Assembly.
“Consultation on the issue of the Punjab Assembly is now under place. Following these deliberations, a decision about the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly will be made. The party leadership, according to the chief minister, with whom he maintained close contact, has not yet given him any orders regarding the dissolution.
“Today, I will speak with Imran Khan, but before, a choice will be made about the Punjab Assembly. Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif, Special Assistant to KP Chief Minister, tweeted earlier today that Imran Khan has ordered the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly to be dissolved.
