According to the notification, the provincial cabinet stands dissolved, while Pervez Elahi is to carry out his duties until a chief minister is elected.

Reacting to the development, PTI Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry said that the notification issued by Governor Punjab de notifying CM Pervez Elahi has “no legal status”.

He said that Pervez Elahi and the provincial cabinet will continue to work as usual. 

A reference will be sent against the governor to President Dr Arif Alvi as part of proceedings to remove him [governor Rehman] from his office, Fawad said.
