Lahore – Amid ongoing political fermentation, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muahmmad Sarwar has accepted Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Umsan Buzdar’s abdication moment (Friday).
The development comes after Usman Buzdar was invited to the Governor House as a routine procedure for evidence of the abdication letter.
Before, the Governor also held a meeting with Prime Minister Imran Khan to seek final authorization regarding the allocation of announcement pertaining to acceptance of the chief minister’s abdication.
As per reports, the Punjab Assembly session has been summoned on 2nd April.
Last week, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) blazoned Leader of Pakistan Muslim League (PML-Q) Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi as its designee for Punjab principal minister after Usman Buzdar abnegated from the top post.
The PML-Q, an important supporter of the PTI at the Centre and the Punjab fiefdom, has acquired a central part in the ongoing political drama despite having only five Members of the National Assembly.
Buzdar’s junking was also sought by Khan’s closest confidantes in the party.
Before that, a no-confidence stir was also filed by the opposition members against Buzdar.
According to a sanctioned handbill issued by the parochial assembly secretariat, 127 parochial lawgivers inked the no-trust stir against Buzdar, while an importunity notice was also submitted to summon session within 14 days.
