Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, has threatened to undermine the ruling coalition by dissolving provincial assemblies and calling for early elections. The PML-N, in an attempt to show its teeth, has appeared “nonchalant” about the repercussions and has stated that it is ready to “contest the polls three times if PTI decides to dissolve assembles thrive.”
The government has repeatedly rejected PTI’s demand that immediate elections be held or, at the very least, that a date is announced for them. According to the government, accepting talks subject to conditions would not only make the entire process “meaningless,” but would also give PTI the appearance of having won.
According to Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Marriyum Aurangzeb
“We are ready for elections at any moment; if PTI dissolves provincial assemblies three times before the next general elections, we would be ready to compete three times.”
The government’s spokesperson avoided giving the impression that the PML-N was fleeing the polls while keeping PTI’s winning streak in mind while challenging PTI chairman Imran Khan to move on with his announcement that Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa will soon be dissolved.
The PTI said on Thursday that it was open to speaking with the federal government about the upcoming elections and that it would be willing to hold them in August or September provided the ruling coalition first announced the date and shared an economic strategy.
