  • Party believes there may be situation when all of them will be needed. 
  • PTI has already said it will take trust vote before Jan 11.

LAHORE: The Punjab Assembly lawmakers belonging to the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) have been asked to stay in Lahore as their party believes that their presence may be needed for the huddle possibly being convened next week.

The direction came from the party’s Punjab President Rana Sanaullah Khan who chaired a meeting with the MPAs in Lahore on Wednesday.

The meeting discussed in detail the possibility that the Punjab chief minister, Chaudhry Parvez Elahi, may try to take a vote of confidence during the assembly session called on January 9. The meeting also discussed the present numbers game.

During the meeting, the majority of MPAs expressed their concerns over the economic situation, rising inflation and unemployment, sources said. The MPAs said that they could not travel to their constituencies because people would ask them about high electricity rates, petrol prices and an unstoppable increase in the prices of essential commodities.

Sanaullah assured the members that they would address their concerns as soon as possible.

The sources said Sanaullah told the MPAs that the federal government was taking big decisions considering the problems of the people. He said that the party will become more active after Maryam Nawaz returns and assumes her new role as senior vice-president and chief organiser of the party.

Sanaullah said that the federal government was trying hard to get out of the present economic crisis. He admitted that there were reservations within the PMLN about some issues, but there was no grouping and the party was intact. The interior minister also said Nawaz Sharif would come to Pakistan very soon.

“Imran Khan talks about dissolving the assemblies but does not take steps,” he said.

Meanwhile, after getting the new designation in the party, Maryam Nawaz Sharif resumed her political activities and held various online meetings with the party leadership. She told the party leaders that the performance report of the party’s administrative position would be prepared and submitted to her after she would assume duties of the party’s chief organiser.

The sources said that Maryam Nawaz has hinted at bringing about important changes to the party’s structure after reviewing the performance of administrative position holders. The sources claimed that Maryam Nawaz was likely to come back to Pakistan in the last week of this month.

Information suggests that court magistrate Malik Muhammad Imran exonerated Imran Khan, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and Sheikh Rasheed, the chief of AML, in addition to announcing the reserved verdict.

Acquittal of Sadaqat Abbasi and Ali Nawaz Awan from the Azadi March case was also ordered by the court.

It should be mentioned that numerous prominent members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), like as Shah Mahmood Qureshi, former prime minister Imran Khan, and others, were apprehended by the police in separate complaint letters pertaining to the Azadi March.

Following unrest between police and the PTI leader in the provincial capital, 42 charges were filed against PTI senior leaders and workers for agitation.

The Islamabad High Court (IHC) had previously found former prime minister Imran Khan and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi not guilty in a case involving ciphers.

Decisions on appeals from the cipher case’s conviction were announced by Chief Justice Aamir Farooq and Justice Miangul Hassan Aurangzeb of the IHC.

The party’s vice-chairman and founder, who was convicted in a similar case in January of this year, received 10-year prison sentences apiece.

On the other hand, Qureshi’s arrest in the crimes that occurred on May 9th and Imran’s sentences in the Toshakhana and Iddat cases mean that they are unlikely to be released from prison anytime soon.
