Pakistan military spokesman Major General Babar Iftikhar has denied any sort of involvement of the Army in the prevailing political situation in the country.
The military spokesman made the remarks while speaking to a private TV channel over the rejection of a no-confidence motion and subsequent dissolution of the National Assembly (NA) by President Arif Alvi on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
“The army has absolutely nothing to do with what happened in the NA today,” Iftikhar said.
Terming it “unconstitutional” under Article 5, Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri earlier on Sunday dismissed the no-confidence motion submitted by the joint opposition to dislodge the prime minister.
It provided space for the Prime Minister to send advice to the President about the dissolution of the lower house.
A no-confidence motion was moved by the opposition on March 8 but Prime Minister Khan fought back by declaring it a “foreign conspiracy” to topple his elected government.
According to Prime Minister Khan, the top army leadership met him last week and offered three options to resolve the political impasse, which included his resignation, facing no-confidence or calling early elections.
