Shehbaz Sharif, the leader of the opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), has written a letter to Asad Qaiser, the speaker of the National Assembly (NA), in which he accuses him of failing to fulfill his constitutional responsibilities in connection with a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
It was said in the opposition leader’s letter that the request for a no-trust motion was presented on March 08 and that a request for a National Assembly session was also submitted on the same day.
Shehbaz Sharif wrote to National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser, stating that the speaker should have given notices on the no-trust motion immediately, but that this did not occur. In fact, he claimed that some members had gotten copies of the warnings as early as March 19th.
He stated that the speaker was required to convene a session of the National Assembly within 14 days after receiving the demand, but that Asad Qaiser did not carry out his constitutional obligation to convene a session.
On the agenda for today’s session of the National Assembly is a critical no-trust resolution against Prime Minister Imran Khan, which has been moved by the combined opposition. The session is scheduled for today.
The session will begin promptly at 11 a.m. Today’s session will be governed by a 15-point ‘Order of the Day published by the National Assembly Secretariat, which contains the motion on no-trust in the government.
Due to the death of MNA Khayal Zaman, it is possible that the resolution may not be tabled on the opening day of the session. According to legislative tradition, the first sitting is adjourned after prayers are offered for the souls of Legislators who have died.
As required by the constitution, the National Assembly speaker was required to call the assembly session within 14 days of the joint opposition’s filing of a request notice to the National Assembly Secretariat on March 8, which was received by the National Assembly Secretary.
Important instructions for the MNAs have been provided by the National Assembly Secretariat before of the session. During the session, legislators are not permitted to bring in security guards or personal personnel to the Parliament Buildings.
