President Dr. Arif Alvi on Sunday dissolved the National Assembly on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advice under Article 58 of the Constitution. It came hours after the National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri declared the opposition’s no-confidence motion “unconstitutional” and prorogued the house without voting on it.
The joint opposition was accused of working with the United States to overthrow Imran’s government. When the lawmakers were in the assembly and the entire nation was glued to the television screens, the prime minister appeared on national television to announce that he had asked the president to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh elections.
“No foreign power or corrupt elements, but only you have to decide for this country,” Imran remarked as he urged the nation to prepare for elections. He went on to say that after the assemblies were dissolved, the process of forming a caretaker administration will begin.

The Country has been in chaos for many days due to the political squabble between Imran and the unified opposition. The “Big Surprise” that Imran Khan had kept hidden until now, has pushed the battle to Supreme Court Now.
Meanwhile, Supreme Court, while hearing the Suo Motu case pertaining to the ruling issued by the National Assembly speaker has been adjourned till 12:05 pm tomorrow. Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial said that it could not decide on the case without listening to everyone. “The ruling cannot come out of thin air,” he mentioned.
Meanwhile, Pakistan’s top court has also prevented the political parties and state institutions from taking any “unconstitutional step” following the ongoing political crisis in the country.
