    There is a possibility that Alvi might remain in office under Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif, who is expected to be elected as the new prime minister on Monday, the report said.

    Pakistan President Arif Alvi has decided against resigning from his office, media reports said on Sunday, days after the Supreme Court restored the National Assembly which was dissolved by him on the advise of former prime minister Imran Khan. Alvi decided not to resign after consultation with the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf party, The Express Tribune newspaper reported.
    The president, a member of Khan's PTI, was advised to continue discharging his constitutional duties, the report said. If the new federal government led by the Opposition takes the constitutional route to oust the president, then the party will make a decision based on the circumstances, the report said.
    There is a possibility that Alvi might remain in office under Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif, who is expected to be elected as the new prime minister on Monday, it added. Alvi, 72, assumed office as the 13th President of Pakistan in September 2018.
