Speaker National Assembly Sardar Ayaz Sadiq has written a letter to Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) about the issue of resignations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) lawmakers. According to Article-224 (1) of the Constitution, "A general election to the National Assembly or a Provincial Assembly shall be held within a period of sixty days immediately following the day on which the day on which the term of the Assembly is due to expire, unless the Assembly has been sooner dissolved, and the results of the election shall be declared not later than fourteen days before that day."

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has asked Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Siraj-ul-Haq to clarify his position whether his party stands by Nawaz Shairf or PTI. Addressing his party workers at D-Chowk sit-in here on Thursday, he urged the JI Amir to take a decision whether he wanted to stand by PTI or PML-N.
Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) lawmakers have urged the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government to take up the issue of reopening 40-year-old cases against Bangladeshi JI leaders with the Bangladesh government.
The Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq on Thursday said the country was facing threats from 'political Nilofar' along with the real tropical cyclone heading towards the country. Talking to media at Quetta Airport, he said the situation developed in the wake of sit-ins was a challenge for both-the government and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) has set up special disaster management wards with around 200 beds in its four major hospitals to cope up with an emergency in the wake of cyclone Nilofar. The KMC administration has imposed emergency in all its hospitals and cancelled leaves of medial and paramedical staff. The Corporation has set up 100-bed disaster management wards at its Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.
At least three persons were killed and about two and half dozens injured in collision between truck and passenger bus here on Thursday.
