PESHAWAR: Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan demanded on Wednesday the dissolution of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government over the failure of holding free and fair local body elections in the province.
Speaking at a press conference, the ANP Chief demanded the resignation of K-P Chief Minister Pervez Khattak.
“Re-elections should be held to ensure free and fair polls, and a caretaker government should be formed,” Wali said.
The ANP chief said as long as Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is in rule, free and fair elections will not be possible.
Khan criticized Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, saying he “has double standards.”
“In Punjab, he blames Najam Sethi, while for the rigging in K-P local government elections instead of holding the provincial government responsible, he blamed the ECP.”
Falling back on the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Local Government Act 2013, ANP chief stressed upon the need for a new local government act.
