PML-Q to challenge Hamza Shahbaz’s election as Punjab CM


Lahore: PML-Q has decided to challenge the election of PML-N’s Hamza Shahbaz as Punjab chief minister.

The decision was made during a parliamentary party meeting of the PML-Q and PTI, with Chaudhry Parvez Elahi as chairman.

“A bogus, unconstitutional and controversial election was held on April 16,” Elahi said while addressing the meeting.

He said that the Punjab governor and advocate-general have declared the chief minister polls controversial and, therefore, it cannot be acknowledged till the situation gets clear.

“Deputy speaker Dost Mohammad Mazari held the election in the gallery, which has no constitutional value. Anyone with a megaphone can hold polls in the guests’ gallery,” he said.

“They can find a fake governor and take a fake oath the way they held a fake election,” Elahi said.

He informed the meeting that the party has convened a meeting of constitutional experts and will develop a strategy to challenge the chief minister election.

He said that the courts were attacked in the past and now the Punjab Assembly has been ambushed.

“Whatever happened has never happened in the history of the Punjab Assembly. The police came as if they were raiding robbers,” the politician added.

He claimed it was all overseen by Hamza in order to drive PML-Q and PTI workers out of parliament.
