NB BUREAU

Amid ongoing political turmoil and economic crisis in the country, Pakistan on Wednesday evening dissolved its National Assembly on the recommendation of Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

The move paved the way for the fresh elections in which former prime minister Imran Khan will be unable to participate.

Khan was jailed for threee years in one of the several cases filed against him since his removal from office in April 2022.

The Pakistani president has given the outgoing government three days to appoint a new interim prime minister and 90 days to hold general elections.
