Asif Ali Zardari, former president of Pakistan and co-chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said that Imran Khan will be welcomed as the opposition leader in the National Assembly.
After Shehbaz Sharif was elected prime minister, the former president stated that he would warmly welcome Imran Khan as the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly (NA), according to his statement.
Asif Ali Zardari went on to say that he hoped Imran Khan will fulfil his democratic responsibilities as the leader of the opposition in the National Assembly.
A no-trust resolution against Prime Minister Imran Khan has been tabled in the National Assembly on April 9 following a Supreme Court ruling. Speaker Asad Qaiser has convened a session of the lower house of Parliament for that day to consider it.
The session will commence at ten o’clock on Saturday morning (today). After the vote on the no-confidence motion, the meeting will be adjourned.
In an earlier decision, a larger bench of five judges, led by Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial, issued a unanimous ruling declaring the events of April 3, including the decision of the NA deputy speaker and the subsequent dissolution of the assembly, to be in violation of the constitution and without legal effect.
According to the Supreme Court, the speaker of the National Assembly (NA) must call a session of the lower house of Parliament on April 9, Saturday, in order to hold a vote on the no-trust motion.
