The opposition in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) Assembly has decided to take all constitutional and legal means, including a no-confidence motion against the chief minister, to prevent the dissolution of the assembly.

After Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan announced his party’s resignation from the legislative assemblies, an emergency meeting of the K-P Assembly’s opposition was held in Peshawar under the chairmanship of Opposition Leader Akram Khan Durrani.

Regarding the meeting in which representatives of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Awami National Party (ANP) participated the opposition leader said that after Imran’s statement, the opposition parties have been consulted.

He said they reviewed the situation regarding the conditions of the province and the economy.

“I do not believe in what Imran Khan says, I still do not believe in his seriousness, we are democratic people, and we will do politics within democratic means,” he said.

After consulting the party leadership, the opposition will sit and take a decision, he added.

Sardar Hussain Babak of ANP told The Express Tribune that various proposals came up in the opposition’s meeting, including a no-confidence motion against the chief minister.

Every legal and constitutional means will be adopted to prevent the dissolution of the assembly, he added.
