Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Elahi has said on Friday that the Punjab Assembly will be dissolved in line with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s directives, moments after he assured a high court that he would not dissolve the legislative.

“The decision to dissolve the assemblies is final; Imran Khan’s decision will be implemented,” the chief minister wrote on his official Twitter handle.


The Lahore High Court (LHC) restored Elahi as the chief minister on Friday evening, December 23, following an undertaking submitted by him stating that he would not dissolve the provincial assembly.

PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has also emphasized that provincial assemblies will be dissolved “in any case”.


“The undertaking that Pervaiz Elahi has given is technical. However, the PTI does not agree with the undertaking that was given to the court.

Assemblies will be dissolved in any case,” Fawad told journalists in Lahore.
