Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) has asked Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi to take the confidence vote from the provincial assembly and then decide its dissolution.
Speaking at a news conference, senior PML-N leader Talal Chaudhry said that Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi first needs to take the confidence vote by showing the support of 186 members and then decide about the dissolution of the assembly.
“Show the support of 186 members to the nation and dissolve the assembly in the next minute…How can a chief minister dissolve a provincial assembly who isn’t enjoying the support of the members required to pass the confidence vote in the house?” he asked.
The PML-N leader further said that his party was not afraid of going in the elections, for which a “fair environment” and a “level playing field” must be in place for all the heads of the political parties.
In an apparent reference that PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif should also be allowed to contest the general election by acquitting him in all the cases against him, Talal Chaudhry said that no free and fair election could be held in Pakistan unless a level playing field was in place. “Nawaz Sharif was disqualified for not taking a salary from his son, and Imran Khan was allowed to contest the polls despite not declaring his daughter [Tyrian White],” he maintained.
