However, legal experts believe that if the boss minister unable win vote of confidence in terms set Governor Baligur Rehman, office of Chief Minister empty, plunging the province into a deep constitutional crisis.
They said it would also subject the practitioner to legal consequences over anticipated obstacle. “Those who contribute to such a constitutional misadventure can be held accountable against as such,” warned lawyer Osama Khawar. It would be exactly the same position when during no-confidence motion against then-prime minister Imran Khan in April [this year]the court later found several people guilty of violating the constitution. “They were not continued against, but this cannot be considered a precedent or guarantee no matter what happens next time,” he warned.
“Otherwise, a figurehead of province, especially after the 18th amendment, section 130 and its subsection 7 give discretionary powers to the governor – and do it for a reason. Both the president in the center and the governor who initiates and sets course of vote of confidence in provinces. Main minister keeps office to his pleasure. It’s a constitution, not an interpretation of it,” said Mr. Osama.
Supreme Court lawyer Malik Awais Khalid agreed. “Article 130 and its subparagraph 7 concern with the subject clearly states that the governor in his own satisfaction (read discretion) decides when, in his opinion, chief minister demands a new mandate from house”.
“This is a stand-alone provision that does not require conditional conditions… The only requirement is that he fix time for Main minister go through the process, and this procedure also final. If it is not completed within fixed term, leader minister considered to have lost confidence of in house and his place,” said Mr. Malik.
At the same time, the experts were also clear about the consequences. “If vote of confidence the process has not been completed to date, the current manager minister not only would he lose his office, but he cannot continue to work even as a caretaker – normal practice of keep the seat warm next one appointed, they added.
