Why was Hamza Shahbaz removed from office?

Parvez Elahi got a majority in the elections held on Friday, despite this he lost the election because Deputy Speaker of Punjab Legislative Assembly Dost Mohammad Mazari rejected ten votes of PML-Q and because of this Parvez Ilahi lost the election. After this Parvez Elahi challenged Mazari’s decision in the Supreme Court. After hearing the case, the court called the decision of Deputy Speaker Mazari illegal and announced the name of former PM Imran Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s candidate Parvez Elahi as the new CM. The Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) is a party supported by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party (PTI). And in this election, Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) got 186 votes and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz got 179 votes.

Why did the President administer the oath?

In fact, a three-member bench of the Supreme Court had ordered Punjab Governor Bali-ur-Rehman to administer the oath to Parvez Elahi, but the governor refused to administer the oath. After the governor refused, the President called Elahi to Islamabad by a special plane and administered the oath.
