President Arif Alvi is due in Lahore on Wednesday to hold consultations with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan regarding the dissolution of assemblies, it is learnt.

President Alvi will meet Imran at his Zaman Park residence as the deadline to announce the date of dissolution of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies nears.

The president, who is on a three-day visit to Lahore, will stay at the Punjab Governor House. He is also scheduled to attend a function at Pakistan Navy War Complex in Walton.

The president will also meet Chief Minister Parvez Elahi at the CM House to discuss the prevailing political situation and the dissolution of the assembly.

PTI chief Imran Khan has already said that he will give a schedule on December 20 if the government of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif does not share the date for the general election.

President Alvi, who held talks with PDM government representative Ishaq Dar, would share details of meetings with Imran.

The two leaders have held multiple rounds in Islamabad on issues related to elections, the economy and security. However, the discussions remained inconclusive as the government rejected to hold talks on PTI conditions.

It is believed that the PTI chairman may announce his final decision in this regard.

Former premier Imran Khan last month, in a surprise move, said that the PTI will not remain part of “this corrupt system” and quit all assemblies.
