Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has dismissed President Arif Alvi’s recent letter requesting help from his government and caretaker officials in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, accusing the president of partisan writing that doesn’t reflect constitutional positions. Sharif also condemned the President’s decision to dissolve the National Assembly on 3 April, stating that Dr Alvi had acted unconstitutionally. President Alvi had previously called on the Prime Minister to assist in holding an April election date in Punjab, citing Article 46 of the Constitution. Sharif expressed concerns over violations against politicians and citizens made by police and law enforcement agencies, as well as curbs on freedom of speech. The prime minister, who claimed the president has been actively working against the elected constitutional government, said in a statement that he was forced to respond to the letter due to its language and tone. Sharif signed the letter by questioning a lack of meaningful consultation with the President on policy issues, as required by the Constitution.
