Troubled Imran in jail
Presently this jail has more than 700 inmates and has only C-category facilities. If sources are to be believed, a plan to transfer more than 100 prisoners to Adiala and other jails is also being considered in view of security concerns. The PTI chairman had raised concerns about the environment in the jail during his meeting with his lawyer on Monday. He said that his cell was occupied by flies during the day and insects by night. The party demanded that he be sent to Adiala and a jail with A-class facilities. Activists have also approached the Islamabad High Court for this purpose.
parliament will be dissolved
Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is about to recommend to President Arif Alvi the dissolution of the National Assembly to pave the way for the next general elections in the country. The five-year term of the lower house of parliament ends on August 12. Sharif had said in Islamabad on Tuesday, “I will write a letter to the President on Wednesday and recommend it to dissolve the National Assembly after the completion of the term of the present government.” After this, an interim government will take over.
The President can immediately issue a notification to dissolve the Alvi Assembly. If they don’t do this, it will automatically dissolve after 48 hours. This is the second time that the President will dissolve the Alvi Assembly. Earlier in April 2022, the then Prime Minister Imran Khan had recommended its dissolution. Alvi ordered its dissolution, but the Supreme Court later overturned the decision.
