Will move ECP, court for K-P Assembly session: PPP

Kundi says provincial govt avoiding swearing-in of reserved seat MPAs

​ Our Correspondents March 23, 2024



The PPP on Friday announced that it would approach the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) and court to convene a meeting of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Assembly.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad, PPP leader Faisal Karim Kundi said the K-P government was in a state of confusion and it was not calling the assembly session to avoid the administration of oath to MPAs allocated reserved seats.

Kundi maintained that K-P Chief Minister Ali Amin Gandapur delivered bold dialogues outside but begged in front of PM Shehbaz Sharif when he was inside the latter’s office.

Kundi said his party wanted good relations between the province and federation.

The PPP leader said the process of government formation would be completed after the Senate elections.

“The ruling alliance will emerge victorious in the Senate polls,” he added.

He pointed out that the budget had to be announced and the government would approach the International Monetary Fund (IMF) again.

However, he continued that the government would try to provide relief to the people.

Talking about the growing terrorism in the country, Kundi said the government had repeatedly sent a message to Afghanistan that its soil was being used against Pakistan. “We cannot tolerate it anymore. We want good ties with our neighbours but this does not mean that you hand over your land to our enemies.”

In a related development, sources said K-P governor Haji Ghulam Ali met Gandapur in Islamabad.

They added that the meeting which took place at the K-P House lasted for more than an hour.

The sources said Ghulam Ali and Gandapur discussed the reserved seats, oath-taking of MNAs and K-P’s resources.

They continued that the governor urged the CM to work together on constitutional issues.
