CM Elahi Will Seek Vote Of Confidence Soon, Says Fawad
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Fawad Chaudhry has said that Punjab Chief Minister Pervez Elahi will take a confidence, and a delegation of the party will meet the PML-Q leader to finalise a date for the session.

Speaking to media person outside the party chief's residence in Lahore's Zaman Park on Saturday, Fawad claimed that LHC had allowed them to seek the vote "whenever we like."

Earlier today, the ruling PML-N rejected the decision to reinstate Elahi, and asked Supreme Court to take a suo motu notice of the matter.

Lahore High Court on Friday reinstated Parvez Elahi as Punjab’s Chief Minister and his Cabinet after the assurance by the latter that he won’t advise the dissolution of the provincial assembly without securing the vote of confidence first.

The order was passed after the PML-Q leader gave the guarantee to the court, bringing days of intense wrangling to an end.

On Dec 19, a delegation of PPP and PML-N submitted the motion against Elahi, saying political parties have lost their confidence in him as the Leader of the House.
