Vote of no-confidence against PM Imran Khan will take place tomorrow

As ordered by the Supreme Court, the National Assembly’s session for a vote of a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan will take place at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday) in accordance with the Supreme Court’s ruling on the matter.

The voting on the no-confidence resolution is the fourth item on the six-point agenda for the National Assembly (NA), according to the schedule released on Friday morning.

The National Assembly (NA) was restored a day earlier after the Supreme Court ruled that the government’s decision to dissolve the assembly and NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri’s ruling against the Constitution were both unconstitutional.

No later than 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 9, the National Assembly will be called back to order by the Supreme Court to allow for the vote on the no-confidence resolution against the premier to be taken up for consideration.

Aside from that, the Supreme Court “declared that the assembly was in existence at all times and that it continues to exist and be so.”

According to the Supreme Court, the speaker cannot prorogue the assembly and put the session to an end if the no-confidence motion is defeated or after a new prime minister is chosen if the no-confidence motion is passed.
