Govt should ‘dissolve assembles’ for polls

ISLAMABAD, April 09 : Stressing the need for fresh elections in the country, PTI leader Asad Qaiser on Saturday said that the government would have to dissolve the National Assembly if it wanted to come out of the crisis.

Talking to media, Qaiser said: “The government should dissolve the assemblies if it wants to hold elections across the country on the same.”

Putting the onus of creating a conducive environment for negotiation on the Pakistan Democratic Movement-led government, the former NA speaker reiterated that his party was ready for dialogue.

To a question, he said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif fears his party — the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) —would suffer a defeat in the upcoming elections, hence, he was reluctant to hold elections.

He maintained that negotiations on constitutional reforms could be held if assemblies were dissolved.

The PTI, on April 6, extended a dialogue offer to the coalition government to finalise a date for the “national elections”, hours after the National Assembly passed a resolution rejecting the three-member Supreme Court bench’s “minority” verdict on the Punjab elections.
