Elections possible in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in April, did Imran's political bet fail? - pakistan imran khan election punjab Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ntc

The Election Commission of Pakistan has given a big political blow to former Prime Minister Imran Khan. It has been said that elections can be held in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in the month of April. Now this is a setback for Imran Khan because he had dissolved the assembly in both these provinces this month under a well-thought-out strategy. A demand was made on their behalf that elections should be held in the country as soon as possible. But the Shahbaz government did not budge from his bet, but the proposal of the Election Commission definitely blew the wind out of his strategy.

For information, let us tell you that Imran Khan’s party was in power in both Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces. But as a strategy, the assembly was dissolved in Punjab province on January 14, while in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the assembly was dissolved on January 18. Acting Chief Ministers were appointed in both the provinces. But the constitution of Pakistan clearly states that it is necessary to conduct elections within 90 days of the dissolution of the assembly. Now, following the same rule, the Election Commission has said that elections should be held in Punjab province between April 9 and 13, whereas in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, a proposal was made to hold elections on April 15 to 17.

Now this thing has been said by the Election Commission at a time when the Shahbaz government has made it clear that it is going to conduct elections in Pakistan on time. He is not in the mood to conduct elections before August. In such a situation, it is proving to be a double blow for Imran Khan. The road protests that are being organized on their behalf, the way they are talking from every forum about holding elections soon, meanwhile the decision of the Election Commission spoils their hard work. By the way, only one proposal has been given by the Election Commission, the dates of elections will be announced by the Governor of both the provinces.
