PM Shehbaz says Oct-Nov ‘suitable’ for elections

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif suggested on Wednesday that the country’s elections should be held in November or October.

He made the remarks while speaking at a coalition party meeting in Islamabad.

Referring to what had been discussed during the coalition partners’ meeting earlier in the day, he stated that the assembly’s term will end on August 13.

As a result, the coalition partners have unanimously resolved to hold the elections in October.

He also chastised former Prime Minister Imran Khan, stating that the legislature will vote on the allocation of funds to the electoral body for conducting polls in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), where assemblies were dissolved by Imran to compel snap elections in the country.

PM Shehbaz stated that instead of proposing answers, the PTI leadership attempted to abuse the country’s difficult situation by instructing provincial finance ministers to reject IMF demands in order to stymie the deal.

Furthermore, the party attempted to sow confusion and divide in society, he continued.

Even the armed forces and their leaders were not immune, as certain PTI agents from abroad were actively working against them.

He stated that, notwithstanding the parliament’s refusal to recognize the three-member bench, the Supreme Court intended to proceed with the same bench. He stated that the coalition parties had agreed unanimously to accept the Supreme Court’s 4-3 decision, rather than 2-3.
