ISLAMABAD: The military has nothing to do with what happened today, Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar Sunday told Geo News after the country witnessed a political rollercoaster ride within the span of a few hours.

Replying to a question regarding the involvement of the Army in the political developments of the day, the DG ISPR bluntly denied any sort of involvement and said: "absolutely not".

The DG ISPR's comments on the ongoing political situation came after President Arif Alvi approved the dissolution of the National Assembly on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan. 

Before this, the NA deputy speaker ruled to adjourn the session held for voting on the no-confidence motion against PM Imran Khan, terming it "unconstitutional."

According to sources, elections will be held within a period of 90 days.

In a brief address to the nation after the no-confidence motion was rejected, the premier congratulated the nation and said that he had sent a proposal to the President to dissolve the NA and the nation should prepare for the next elections.
