Timing of the NA session changed to elect a new prime minister for Pakistan

There has been a modification in the hours of the National Assembly session slated for Monday to pick a new prime minister for Pakistan after Imran Khan was deposed by a vote of no confidence.

According to the latest information, the National Assembly session to elect the new prime minister for Pakistan will now take place on Monday at 2:00 pm, rather than the previously scheduled time of 11:00 am.

“The nomination papers for the election of the new prime minister might be received as early as 2:00 am on Sunday,” said Ayaz Sadiq, the chairman of the National Assembly’s Commission on the election of the new prime minister.

Furthermore, strong security measures are still in place around the D-chowk, with police stating that the roads leading to Parliament will be reopened following the election of a new premier in the country.

On top of that, the PTI has organized a protest at D-Chowk today to demonstrate their opposition to the prime minister’s dismissal.

It is important to note that Imran Khan has been removed from his post as prime minister (PM) following the success of a no-confidence resolution brought by opposition parties against him on Sunday night.

The opposition requiresd the support of at least 172 members of parliament from a total of 342 members in order to remove the premier through a no-trust motion.

A no-confidence motion against Imran Khan received 174 votes, which was a majority of the total number of votes. This is the first time in Pakistan’s history that a no-confidence resolution against an elected prime minister has been successful in the country’s parliament.
