After a party meeting amid the prevailing political uncertainty, PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry on Monday said they had approved the dissolution of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa assemblies.

He made the announcement while talking to media in Lahore two days after PTI Chairman Imran Khan express his intentions at a rally held in Rawalpindi to culminate the long march.

“As you know that we have already announced that we are exiting provincial assemblies. A decision to dissolve both Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa assemblies has been approved,” Fawad said.

Imran held meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mehmood Khan earlier in the day and would meet with Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi on Tuesday to discuss the matter.

However, there is seemingly resistance or confusion in the party with no final decision has been reached so far as Fawad said the assemblies would be dissolved following the Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s parliamentary meetings scheduled to be held on Friday and Saturday respectively.

Earlier in the day, PTI leader Barrister Saif had told reporters that the majority of provincial assembly members in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa stood by the party leadership’s decision, which means that some of them aren’t happy with the move or have reservations.

Although all the PTI MPAs from Sindh submitted their resignations to the party’s parliamentary leader Khurram Sher Zaman on Monday at Imran’s directives, but Sardar Yar Muhammad said Sunday that no decision had been reached about the Balochistan Assembly.
