On Wednesday, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah says impose governor’s rule in Punjab if he was denied access.
Speaking at a news conference in Islamabad, he declared that due to the statements opposition political figures had been making, he had already started crafting a summary for the implementation of governor’s rule, which was moved by the interior ministry.
He declared that “if my entry is restricted, there will be grounds for governor’s rule.”
The news conference by the interior minister came hours after Chaudhry Parvez Elahi of the PML-Q was sworn in as the new chief minister of Punjab as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision invalidating Hamza Shehbaz’s victory in the July 22 run-off election.
At Aiwan-i-Sadr in Islamabad, President Dr. Arif Alvi swore Elahi in. Balighur Rehman, the governor of the Punjab, declined to do the job, therefore Elahi was forced to hastily travel from Lahore to the federal capital.
Usman Buzdar’s resignation started a months-long struggle over the province chief executive that culminated with Elahi’s swearing-in.
