Nawaz, Maryam coming back this month to lead by-polls after dissolution of Punjab, KP assemblies

ISLAMABAD: PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz are returning to Pakistan within this month to lead by-elections in Punjab and KP after dissolution of both the assemblies.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif told this to PML-N leaders in a meeting on Friday. Before meeting, PM Shehbaz contacted Nawaz Sharif on telephone and discussed with him the latest political scenario in Punjab and KP provinces.

Governor Punjab Baligh ur Rehman is expected to dissolve the Punjab Assembly today, a day after chief minister Pervez Elahi signed the summary to dissolve PA and sent it to the Governor.

PML-N has decided to contest by-elections in Punjab against the PTI and PML-Q. The PML-N leaders believe that Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz can play a vital role in winning seats in Punjab province during by-polls.

Meanwhile, on Friday, Governor Punjab Baligh ur Rahman said that he would endorse the advice of the chief minister and dissolve the provincial assembly with a ‘heavy heart’. He said that he has 48 hours to dissolve the assembly.

On Thursday, Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi formally advised the Governor of Punjab to dissolve the provincial assembly.

Punjab chief minister took this decision a few hours after taking a fresh vote of confidence.

PTI chairman Imran Khan held a meeting with Punjab chief minister on Thursday in Lahore in which the party leaders decided to dissolve the provincial assembly immediately.

Soon after the dissolution of Punjab Assembly, PTI will also dissolve the KP assembly.
