Fawad Chaudhry said in a tweet that Prime Minister Imran Khan will continue to carry out his responsibilities under Article 224.
On Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advice, President Arif Alvi approved the dissolution of the National Assembly earlier in the day.
“If the prime minister so advises, the President shall dissolve the National Assembly; and the National Assembly shall, unless sooner dissolved, stand dissolved at the expiration of forty-eight hours after the prime minister has so advised,” according to Article 58.
Prime Minister Imran Khan announced that he has advised President Arif Alvi to dissolve all the assemblies in an unexpected move.
His brief public address aired shortly after a crucial National Assembly session scheduled to vote on a no-confidence motion against him was abruptly adjourned because the deputy speaker deemed the vote “unconstitutional.”
