The Lahore High Court has set Tuesday as a date for hearing a petition challenging the possible dissolution of the Punjab Assembly, reported 24NewsHD TV channel Monday.

Namdar Ali, a citizen of Toba Sheikh Singh, filed the petition on Monday and the LHC will hear the petition as an urgent case.

In the petition, Imran Khan, Punjab Government, Chief Election Commissioner, Punjab Governor and Chief Minister have been made parties through the Principal Secretary.

It was argued in the petition that Imran Khan announced the dissolution of the Punjab and KPK Assemblies on December 17, which is against the constitutional autonomy of the provinces.

The petition stated that in an interview, Punjab Chief Minister Pervez Elahi gave a statement to fulfil the constitutional time of the assembly.

The Punjab chief minister also made a statement about signing the summary of the dissolution of the assembly a month ago.

The petition said the dissolution of the Assembly on Imran Khan's request will be against the constitution and law.

The petitioner said Imran Khan wanted to dissolve the Punjab Assembly for his own interests, which will harm the country and prayed to the court to issue an order to stop the dissolution of the Punjab Assembly.
