But he, the founder of PILDAT further explained in a tweet, had to revisit his views after hearing the arguments of the lawyer representing the provincial lawmakers loyal to Jehangir Khan Tareen. What changed his mind was the point articulated by the lawyer that the PTI’s parliamentary leader in Punjab Assembly never issued a formal direction regarding who to vote for. Therefore, “I no longer consider it an open [and] shut case,” Mehboob tweeted. Reference against the dissenting MPAs was sent by Punjab Assembly Speaker and has been taken up by the Election Commission of Pakistan.

They also set out the ones which he does on his own (appointment of caretaker and dissolution of assemblies--on the advice of the PM).

Party tickets the main concern as election bells start ringing | The Express Tribune

With the no-confidence motion on the horizon for the second time in a week, the country will likely head towards an election sooner or later given the political uncertainty; now the country’s political parties have a formidable task on hand - who gets the ticket? The reinstated Prime Minister, owing to a Supreme Court decision, Imran Khan, recently announced that he would give tickets to ideological activists within the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) instead of opting for ‘electables’ in the upcoming elections. Lahore is of particular importance to all who have a stake in the election due to the city having 14 general seats in the National Assembly and 30 general seats in the Punjab Assembly. However, a challenge awaits those who get the PTI ticket from Lahore, as in the 2018 elections, 95 percent of the PTI ticket holders in the city, who won the national and provincial seats, had a margin of victory on average of 9,000 votes; whereas in contests where the PTI lost, the margin was more than 21,000 votes on average.

Prime Minister Imran Khan is widely known for two things: he is unpredictable and he knows how to get attention. For instance, right when the opposition parties were celebrating the victory of democracy and Constitution after the country’s top court decision, he was mulling over resigning en masse from the National Assembly; a move discussed in detail but countered with the suggestion of doing what he did best: sit on the opposition benches instead of giving a walkover to the other side. Despite the judicial setback on Thursday night, many believe that the prime minister can still mount a political comeback through public support provided how he deals with the Supreme Court’s decision nullifying his unconstitutional moves. The confirmation that he will continue to fight till the last ball came from his Twitter account soon after the court decision. The question, however, was if he still is the phenomenon that once was before the top court decision and if the nation would witness more criticism on the establishment for staying “neutral” amid political turmoil in the coming days.

Pakistani Prime Minister Facing No-Confidence Vote | VoA

Ahead of a serious challenge brewing in Pakistan's lower house, the National Assembly, embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan, a former cricket celebrity, has distanced his country from the United States and strained a fragile domestic political culture with verbal salvos against political rivals. The opposition, made up of former adversaries, claims to have enough votes to overthrow Khan's government through a vote of no confidence. Over a dozen elected members of his own Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party have officially backed the opposition's motion of no confidence, citing the government's failure to manage inflation and to govern properly. Some ruling coalition partners have joined forces with the opposition, while others have condemned what they call Khan's revenge politics.

It was a bold step on part of Prime Minister Imran Khan to opt for systemic reforms in the government and undertake performance review. He, in fact, went a step further and, despite advice to the contrary, publicly announced the results of the performance assessment.

Politics in Utopia

Politics is generally considered a dirty game, laced with treachery and conspiracies all over the world but the scorn is extremely pronounced in Pakistan. There are many reasons behind such negative connotations being attached to the word. First comes the activities of politicians, which is followed by a lack of awareness about political science–a discipline taught in many universities of Pakistan. Lastly, in some cases, the youth is deterred to discern and from taking part in politics due to an egregious picture before them.

Key Words: Politics in Pakistan, Democracy

فارن فنڈنگ رپورٹ۔۔تحریک ا نصاف کیخلاف کیا کچھ ہو سکتا ہے۔۔ماہرین نے بتادیا

الیکشن کمیشن کے سابق سیکرٹری کنور دلشاد کا کہنا ہے کہ سکروٹنی کمیٹی کی طرف سے پاکستان تحریک انصاف کے بینک اکاؤنٹ اور غیر ملکی فنڈنگ کے بارے میں جو رپورٹ پیش کی ہے اس کے بعد اب الیکشن کمیشن اس پر جوڈیشل کارروائی شروع کرے گا۔بی بی سی سے بات کرتے ہوئے انہوں نے کہا کہ الیکشن ایکٹ 2017 کا سیکشن 204 اس حوالے سے بڑا واضح ہے کہ کوئی بھی غیر ملکی ادارہ، تنظیم یا شخصیت پاکستان میں کسی سیاسی جماعت کو فنڈ فراہم نہیں کر سکتی۔انہوں نے کہا کہ سکروٹنی کمیٹی کی اس رپورٹ میں ان غیر ملکی اداروں اور ان شخصیات کی بھی نشاندہی کی گئی ہے جنہوں نے پاکستان تحریک انصاف کو فنڈ فراہم کئے۔کنور دلشاد کا کہنا تھا کہ پاکستان تحریک انصاف کی غیر ملکی فنڈنگ کا معاملہ 2014 میں سامنے آیا تھا اور الیکشن کمیشن کے حکام کی طرف سے اس معاملے کو منطقی انجام تک پہنچانے میں تاخیر کی گئی۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ خود پاکستان تحریک انصاف کے عہدیداروں نے بھی الیکشن کمیشن کی کارروائی کو رکوانے کے لئے مختلف ہائی کورٹس سے حکم امتناع بھی حاصل کئے۔
