A day before PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s promised announcement regarding the dissolution of the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies, the war of nerves reached fever pitch as their coalition partner, the PML-Q, seemed to be looking for a larger slice of the general election pie.
After their attempt to convince party chief Imran Khan to delay the dissolution of assemblies for two more months failed, the PML-Q reportedly said it would remain PTI’s political ally in the next general election but demanded 25 to 30 seats across the Gujrat division, parts of south Punjab and Sialkot district.
The PML-Q currently holds the citadel of Punjab with its 10 MPAs.
PTI senior leader and former federal minister Fawad Chaudhry acknowledged that the PTI’s seat adjustment with the PML-Q was underway, adding that “the coalition partner will be given a share as per its (strength) and taken along”.
Mr Chaudhry said the PTI chief would announce the dissolution of both provincial assemblies in the much-awaited video-link address that would be heard live by massive public congregations at Liberty Roundabout in Lahore and all other divisional headquarters in the province.
Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi and KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan will present personally in the public congregations.
“The dissolution of assemblies will kick-start the political process in the country,” he added.
Fawad Chaudhry said the PTI would continue its ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’ movement in the election campaign until the general elections day.
“Heading towards the general elections and political stability is the only solution to all the ills plaguing the well-being of the country.”
Separately, Chief Minister Parvez Elahi tweeted that Imran Khan’s decision would be final concerning the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.
