Shehbaz Sharif says Article 6 to be imposed on Imran Khan, Deputy Speaker
NA Deputy Speaker rejects no-confidence motion against PM Imran
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – President of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Mian Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said that Article 6 will be imposed on Prime Minister Imran Khan and Deputy Speaker of National Assembly.
Meanwhile, Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced to move Supreme Court of Pakistan against Deputy Speaker of National Assembly.
Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said that the government has violated constitution by not allowing voting on no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Bilawal Bhutto, in a tweet, announced that the united opposition is not leaving parliament and their lawyers are on their way to Supreme Court against this decision.
“We call on all institutions to protect, uphold, defend and implement the constitution of Pakistan”, he added.
Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Suri had dashed opposition’s hopes of ousting the premier by rejecting no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, terming it against Article 5 of the Constitution.
Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his address to nation, announced that he proposed President Dr Arif Ali to dissolve assembly.
PM Imran’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI) effectively lost its majority in the 342-member assembly last week when a coalition partner said its seven lawmakers would vote with the opposition.
Khan has accused the opposition of conspiring with "foreign powers" to remove him because he won’t take the West’s side on global issues against Russia and China.
Earlier this week he accused the United States of meddling in Pakistan’s affairs.
