Parvez Elahi no longer CM, says Rana Sanaullah as Punjab crisis deepens

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah claimed on Thursday that the constitutionally PML-Q leader Parvez Elahi was no longer the chief minister of Punjab.

“The Punjab governor had asked the chief minister to take a vote of confidence by yesterday, but he did not take it, so according to the constitution, Parvez Elahi is no longer the chief minister,” said Sanaullah while talking to the media in Lahore.

The interior minister said that Governor Baligh Ur Rehman is using his powers under the Constitution, adding that whenever the orders [of de-notifying Parvez Elahi as chief minister] are issued by him, they will be implemented.

On the PTI’s protest outside Punjab’s Governor House, the interior minister said that if the party has planned any hooliganism today then they would make the arrangements for it. He added that it was the responsibility of the provincial government to maintain law and order.

“There is no political crisis. An assembly session will be called for the election of the new chief minister,” said Rana Sanaullah — who is also the PML-N’s provincial chief. He added that as soon as the governor will pass orders they will be implemented.
