PML-N to challenge no-trust move against Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker in SC

According to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), the Supreme Court of Pakistan will hear a challenge to a no-trust motion against Deputy Speaker Punjab Assembly filed by the party.

According to sources familiar with the situation, the PML-N parliamentarians and Attaullah Tarar will file a petition with the Supreme Court challenging the no-trust motion against the deputy speaker.

The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) has moved a no-trust resolution against Dost Muhammad Mazari, the Deputy Speaker of the Punjab Assembly after he insisted on calling a session of the Punjab Assembly on Wednesday.

The PTI members of the province legislature submitted a no-trust motion against the deputy speaker who is sponsored by their party to the secretary of the provincial assembly. Dost Muhammad Mazari no longer has the ability to convene a session of the provincial legislature, as previously reported.

After calling a special session of the Punjab Assembly for tonight at 7:30 pm to elect a new chief minister, Deputy Speaker Sardar Dost Muhammad Mazari announced that it would convene at that time.
