Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Ghulam Ali has accepted the resignations of 14 provincial caretaker ministers and 11 aides to the chief ministers. The resignations were accepted after the caretaker Chief Minister Mohammad Azam Khan requested their resignations due to their political affiliations. The governor acted accordingly and de-notified them all. The chief minister also advised the governor to accept the resignations of six special assistants and five advisers. The resignations were tendered by the caretaker minister, advisers, and special assistants after Chief Minister Azam Khan asked them to do so voluntarily. The Election Commission of Pakistan had asked for the removal of ministers and aides involved in politics to ensure free, fair, and transparent elections. The decision to introduce a new caretaker setup in the province was made due to the political affiliations of most ministers and CM aides. The resignations were welcomed by Awami National Party provincial president Aimal Wali Khan. He called for the exit of the chief minister and governor, stating that they were nominees of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl. The ANP leader emphasized the need for a level-playing field provided by the Election Commission for all political parties.
