KP Assembly to be dissolved by tomorrow, announces CM

– PTI Chief Imran Khan gives go-ahead to Mhief Minister
-Mehmood Khan says he will move dissolution summary under Article 112
-Governor’s approval not necessary for disbanding house

PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government has decided to dissolve the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa As-sembly on Tuesday, hours after it dissolved the Punjab legislative.
KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan — who was awaiting orders — has received directions from PTI Chairman Imran Khan to send the summary for the assembly’s disbandment to the KP governor, Haji Ghulam Ali. The provincial chief executive will send the summary under the Constitution’s Article 112 to the governor, and if Ali decides against signing it, then the legislative will automatically dissolve after 48 hours — which is expected on Thurs-day.
“God willing, the Tehreek-e-Insaf will again form its government [in KP] with a two-third majority,” CM Mahmood wrote on his official Twitter handle on Sunday.
Defending the PTI chairman, the KP chief executive said that Imran Khan had “sacrificed” his governments for the sake of the country.
“[Khan] will soon be the prime minister,” he added.
Mahmood further said that the people of Pakistan had finally come to the understanding that getting rid of the self-interested political mafia was of paramount importance.
“We will complete the journey of development which was started under the leadership of Imran Khan,” he also said. In a similar situation, Punjab CM Parvez Elahi sent the summary to the governor, Baligh Ur Rehman, for the assembly’s dissolution on Thursday. However, Rehman refused to sign it, and the legislative was automatically dissolved on Satur-day.

The PTI chairman had announced the dissolution of the assemblies — Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab — in Novem-ber last year. However, the plans were delayed due to consultations with allies and countermeasures adopted by the ruling allies in the centre. –Agencies
