The Speaker of the National Assembly took a proactive role in the no-confidence motion that was brought against the current Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.
Members of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly, as well as members of the National Assembly, will meet with Speaker Asad Qaiser later today, after which he will continue his conversations with them.
The Assembly will meet next week in order to debate a motion of no confidence that will be submitted to the Speaker of the House of Representatives. PTI, Pakistan’s ruling party, has asked all of its members to remain in Islamabad during the current political crisis.
Opposition parties have introduced no-confidence motions in the National Assembly, calling for the removal of Prime Minister Imran Khan from his post as prime minister.
For no-confidence resolutions against the Prime Minister to be effective, they must get the support of 172 members; the opposition presently has 163 members and needs the support of 9 more members in order to be successful.
