LAHORE: Opposition leader in the provincial assembly Hamza Shahbaz has approached the Lahore High Court seeking the help of the judiciary to hold elections for the post of Chief Minister in Punjab.

The post of Chief Minister has been vacant for more than a week since former Governor Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar – who was removed from his post last week – accepted the resignation of Usman Bazdar on April 1.

While filing an appeal in the court, Hamza named Speaker Punjab Assembly Pervez Elahi, Deputy Speaker Dost Muhammad Mazari and Inspector General of Police Punjab Rao Sardar Ali Khan as parties.

In the petition, the Leader of the Opposition said that the post of Chief Minister was vacant despite the passage of several days and stressed on the need to immediately select someone for the post.

The petitioner said that “Assembly Secretary and administrative officers are following the illegal orders of Pervez Elahi and the session of Punjab Assembly is being adjourned without any reason”.

In the petition, Hamza said that the election of the Chief Minister could not be delayed under Article 130. He said that the parties named in the case were not fulfilling their responsibilities as per law.

Therefore, the court should issue an order as soon as possible and make the elections possible.

The Chief Ministerial candidate had on April 6 called a meeting for the election of the Chief Minister by the Deputy Speaker and barred members of the Punjab Assembly and media personnel from entering the building.

The security of the provincial assembly had also installed barbed wire on the main gate of the assembly.

The move came after the PTI filed a no-confidence motion against Dost Mohammad Mazari – despite being a member of the PTI – as he had called a meeting without consulting the party.

In response, the joint opposition on Thursday also filed a no-confidence motion against the Punjab Assembly Speaker Elahi.

Opposition chooses Hamza as Punjab Chief Minister After the government sealed the provincial assembly two days ago, opposition members elected PML-N leader Hamza as chief minister in a symbolic session of the Punjab assembly.

The meeting was attended by members of PML-N, PPP and PTI’s Jahangir Khan Tareen and Abdul Aleem Khan group while PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz was also present.

PML-N leader and MPA Rana Mashhood Ahmad Khan had claimed that more than 200 MPAs were present at the meeting.

The Tareen and Aleem group has split from the PTI and Prime Minister Imran Khan and decided to support the opposition candidate for the Chief Minister’s post.
