Pakistan’s federal gov’t to step down on Au 9: prime ministe

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif announced that the federal government will step down on August 9, triggering a caretaker administration until the next general elections. This follows the dissolution of the National Assembly, which directly elects the government, three days before its five-year term ends on August 12. Sharif will advise the President for dissolution, and if not approved, it will happen automatically after 48 hours. A meeting between the prime minister and opposition leader will determine the caretaker prime minister, who will form a cabinet for three months or until the next elected government, in line with the constitution. General elections must be held within 90 days under the caretaker setup if the assembly dissolves early.
