Pakistan PM Imran Khan asks president to dissolve assemblies, call for early election

ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has recommended president Dr Arif Alvi to dissolve assemblies.
In his address, the premier congratulated the nation on the dismissal of the no-confidence vote against him citing that the opposition was moved by a foreign-funded conspiracy and the speaker had thwarted the “attempt of changing the regime and the foreign conspiracy”.

Minister of Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry took to his official Twitter handle to announce that PM Imran had formally sent a request to the president to dissolve the National Assembly under Article 58 of the Constitution.

Imran’s comments came after National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri dismissed the no-confidence motion submitted by the joint opposition to dislodge the PM terming it “unconstitutional” under Article 5.
