PTI sends strong message to President Arif Alvi
Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has demanded an immediate announcement of the date for general elections from the President of the nation, Dr. Arif Alvi. According to the PTI committee's statement, it has been agreed upon unanimously for the immediate determination of the election date by the President of the nation, while they maintain the constitutional authority and sovereignty of the people's elected representatives to implement it.
According to PTI, Pakistan is going through one of its most delicate periods in its history, facing highly complex issues and crises at constitutional, political, democratic, administrative, economic, and social levels. According to the committee, in April 2022, the non-democratic and unconstitutional actions of the regime change conspiracy gave rise to corruption and chaos in the state structure and governance, causing national security, national unity, national development, fundamental rights of the people, and their lives to be affected beyond imagination.
According to PTI, this excitement and anxiety are intensifying with each passing day; the assemblies of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were analyzed for January 14 and 18, 2023, respectively. The PTI government has refrained from holding elections within 90 days as per Article 224 of the Constitution. According to the committee, as per Article 48 of the Constitution, in case of premature dissolution of the National Assembly, the President of the nation is bound to announce a date for elections within 90 days.
According to PTI, 'Therefore, if the President of the nation does not fulfill his constitutional obligation and fails to announce the date for general elections while ensuring the supremacy of the Constitution, it is a key demand of the higher constitutional office of the President to protect the constitutional and democratic rights of the people.' According to the committee, if the President of the nation does not announce the date of elections, they will be responsible for violating the Constitution and undermining the fundamental constitutional and democratic rights of the people."
