The Iftikhar’s comments on the ongoing political situation came after President Arif Alvi approved the dissolution of the Assembly on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan, The News International reported.

Earlier in the day, the NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri ruled to adjourn the session held for voting on the no-confidence motion against Imran Khan, terming it as “unconstitutional.”

Soon after the Deputy Speaker rejected the no-confidence motion, Imran Khan, in an address to the nation, said he had advised President to dissolve assemblies and call for fresh polls.

He added that the nation should be ready for the next elections which will be held, under the constitution, within a period of 90 days. Sooner, Pakistan President accepted Prime Minister’s recommendation for dissolution of National Assembly.
