In consultation with Pakistan Mulsim League-Quaid (PML-Q), its ally in the Punjab government, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to move the court against Punjab Governor Baligh-ur-Rehman for denotifying Parvez Elahi as the province’s chief minister. 

In a late-night notification, Rehman said that since he believes that Elahi does not command the confidence of the Punjab Assembly, he was de-notifying him as the CM and also dissolving the provincial cabinet.

Following this, an emergency consultative meeting was called at Elahi’s residence, where PML-Q and PTI mulled over their next move.

Speaker Punjab Assembly Sibtain Khan, after the meeting, told journalists that the chief minister would move the court first thing in the morning and that the governor resorted to an “illegal” move.
