The Elections of 1990

The political differences between the government of Punjab and the Federal government reached such a pass that President Ghulam Ishaq Khan had to dissolve National and all provincial assemblies and installed care-taker Chief Minister of the Punjab and the leader of opposition in the National Assembly. Mr. Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi was appointed as care-taker Prime Minister. In the 1990 elections I. J. I achieved a majority and formed governments at the Centre and in all provinces.
After long political crises of thirty months and in view of the sharp differences on the constitutional powers of the President, the President Ghulam Ishaq Khan and the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had to resign from their posts. Mr. Moin Qureshi a Pakistani resident of U. S. A was appointed as the Care-taker Prime Minister and Mr. Wasim Sajjad, the Chairman of Senate took the oath as the Acting President.
