In the same meeting, PM Shehbaz briefed the party’s coalition partners about his intention to draft a response to President Arif Alvi’s letter to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) regarding the election dates in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), which he called “unconstitutional.”

During a meeting attended by senior PML-N leaders, ruling coalition representatives, and the federal government’s legal team, the Prime Minister stated that the President must refrain from engaging in unconstitutional actions in the future.

He further expressed the government’s respect for the judiciary. The PM also emphasized the independence of the ECP, affirming that the government would implement its decisions regarding elections in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The PM stated that the ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’ (court arrest movement) launched by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had disintegrated. Even people refused to accept the politics of anarchy and chaos. He further remarked that the public is now well-aware of PTI’s inconsistent policies.
