Lahore: The main parties of ruling coalition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Friday (today) withdrew a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Punjab Pervez Elahi.
The PML-N leader Khalil Tahir Sindhu and Zeeshan Rafique have taken back the no-confidence motion.
Chaudhry Parvez Elahi on Friday filed a petition in the Lahore High Court (LHC) against an order issued by Governor Balighur Rehman to de-notify him as the Punjab chief minister.
Mr Elahi, in his petition, argued that the governor had not written any letter to the chief minister, asking him to obtain a vote of confidence from the provincial assembly. It added that the governor did not authorise to summon a session when a current session is underway.
A no-confidence motion was already submitted against the chief minister in the Punjab Assembly, it said, adding that Governor Rehman had neglected the Constitution and just followed advice of his lawyers.
The governor has no authority to de-notify the chief minister through a unconstitutional order, Mr Elahi argued while pleading the high court to declare the order null and void.
Punjab Governor Baligh-ur-Rehman had de-notified the Chief Minister (CM) Pervaiz Elahi for not seeking the vote of confidence despite his advice.
The Punjab Governor Baligh-ur-Rehman issued a notification in this regard. Punjab CM Pervaiz Elahi and his cabinet were constitutionally made inactive for not seeking the vote of confidence from the provincial assembly.
Taking to Twitter, Punjab governor shared the order and said since CM Pervaiz Elahi has refrained from obtaining the Vote of Confidence at the appointed day and time therefore he ceases to hold office.
