Chants Of Go Imran Go In NA Today
Following a vote, the idea was judged unpopular and was therefore dropped.
Later in the debate, the deputy speaker invited questions from the audience. Opposition members of parliament (MNAs) continued to demand for a vote on the no-confidence motion today, amid a chant of “go Imran go!”
Because of the opposition’s “non-serious” approach, Suri has decided to postpone the vote on the no-confidence motion until Sunday.
The committee’s meeting, he said, would be held in Committee Room No. 2.
Shehbaz Sharif, the head of the opposition in the National Assembly, presented the resolution against the embattled premier on March 28 and it was approved for consideration the following day, according to media reports.
The consideration of the no-confidence vote against the prime minister was included as item #4 on a 24-point agenda that was circulated in advance of the meeting.
According to Fawaz Chaudhry, Pakistan’s Information Minister, Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to give a “insider’s letter” or convene a joint session of parliament, although he did not provide a precise date for when this meeting would take place.
As soon as the contents of the alleged letter are made known to dissatisfied allies and party defectors, the prime minister believes that they would change their views and vote in favour of the no-trust resolution.
An emergency meeting had been called yesterday, during which the prime minister reviewed the letter with members of his cabinet and staff. Despite having been invited, neither the MQM Pakistan (P) nor the Balochistan Awami Party (P) represented Pakistan’s two most important allies.
Following the “threatening and arrogant tone” of the letter, the prime minister called a meeting of television anchors and warned them that Pakistan would face grave consequences if the no-confidence vote failed.
Shahbaz Sharif Claimed Of Inappropriate Use Of law By Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri
During a press conference held outside the National Assembly, Shehbaz Sharif, the leader of the opposition, accused the deputy speaker of violating the Constitution of the country.
“For as long as the speaker wishes, voting may take place at any moment throughout these four days, regardless of the time of day. Today, on the other hand, was supposed to be a day for speeches “he said.
“The deputy speaker left the chamber during question time in order to avoid a vote on a no-confidence resolution. Suri has breached the law once again today, according to the authorities “Shehbaz shared his thoughts.
As a result of today’s events in Parliament, PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced that the opposition “won.“
“We created 175 MPs in the house today,” he remarked, after announcing that the prime minister had lost his majority and would thus be unable to escape the country.
“Imran Khan, you are now without an escape passage, an escape hatch, or any other means of saving your face. To put it another way, there is a proper approach… Resign and treat democracy with a modicum of respect.” The premier was made aware of the situation.
“You should give Shehbaz Sharif a chance in the no-confidence vote, or you should come to Parliament and complete the numbers game,” the PPP leader concluded.
Today’s NSC Meeting On The Behalf Of PM Imran ‘Threat Letter’
On Thursday, at 6 p.m., the Parliamentary Committee on National Security will assemble in response to the premier’s decision to make the letter available to members of Parliament.
According to a statement from the National Assembly Secretariat, there will be a presider as well as an invitation to all parliamentary party leaders to participate.
In accordance with previous statements, “a briefing on the secret letter” will be presented during a meeting of the national security committee.
Shehbaz Sharif and Shah Mahmood Qureshi, the leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, MQM-P convener Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui, and MQM-P vice-chairman Asif Ali Zardari were among those in attendance of NSC Meeting Today at 6 P.M.
Besides the ministers of defence, planning, and development, as well as the ministers of human rights and information, the National Security Adviser, BAP Senator Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti, MNA Ramesh Kumar Vankwani, MNA Makhdoom Hussain Qureshi, and MNA Amer Ali Khan Magsi, as well as a number of other prominent politicians, were invited to the meeting.
Farrukh Habib responded affirmatively later in the day when asked if the administration will “present all the arguments in front of you so that no one criticises us tomorrow,” saying, “Yes, we will.“
“The opposition should not run away now,” he said at a news conference in Islamabad.
According to Habib, Pakistan’s Foreign Minister, who had been in China for a three-day meeting on Afghanistan, will return to his country today.
“During the meeting, he [Qureshi] will offer the details,” the minister said.
PPP Senator Sherry Rehman Statement Againts No-Trust Vote
Rehman noted on Thursday that the speaker of the House of Representatives had no “constitutional” or “moral” justification for postponing the vote on the no-trust resolution and recommended that it be held today.
In a series of tweets, she claimed that Imran Khan’s “fabricated” majority had been reduced to a minority overnight. “Therefore, should a vote of no confidence be passed, Imran Khan’s government will be dissolved effective immediately. What is it that Imran Khan is yearning for that he is unable to see?”
According to federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid, the vote on the no-confidence motion will take place on April 3.
Rehman said in a series of tweets today that the supposed “secret letter” was being used to evacuate the “sinking ship” that the government was on.
In a tweet, she said that “Imran Khan should not have remained Prime Minister for a single day after the MQM, the BAP, the Jamhoori Watan Party, and independent parliamentarians joined the opposition alliance.” She went on to say that it was better for the prime minister to step down.
آج اسپیکر قومی اسیمبلی کے پاس عدم اعتماد پر ووٹنگ میں تاخیر کا کوئی آئینی و اخلاقی جواز نہیں ہوگا۔ عمران خان کی مصنوعی اکثریت اب اقلیت میں تبدیل ہو چکی ہے۔ عدم اعتماد پر ووٹنگ ہوئی تو آج عمران خان کے سلیکٹڈ حکومت کا آخری دن ہوگا۔ عمران خان کس غیبی امداد کے انتظار میں ہیں؟ 1/2

Announcement of MQM-P Of Joining Opposition
After just a few days, the MQM-P, a key coalition partner of the PTI-led government, formally announced that it would be joining the opposition.
Even without nearly two dozen Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf dissidents who publicly declared their support for Prime Minister Imran Khan earlier this week, the opposition parties have managed to pass the magic 172-member threshold required for forming a government at the Centre, and they now have the support of 177 members of the National Assembly.
“In the last meeting, we had 26 people in attendance. During the planning process, this number was lowered to seven. But now that we’ve demonstrated that a government cannot be formed or removed without these seven seats, we can move forward “In a formal announcement of the party’s decision, MQM-P convener Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui stated that it had been endorsed by the party’s decision-making Rabita Committee, which he added had been endorsed by the Rabita Committee.
Submission of the No-Trust Resolution For has been Delayed
A group of key opposition members filed a no-trust motion against the prime minister with the National Assembly Secretariat on March 8, according to the delegation’s website.
According to the norms and procedures of the assembly, after a motion has been made, the resolution “shall not be voted on before the end of three days, nor later than seven days.“
When the Speaker of the National Assembly abruptly adjourned the session within minutes and refused to allow Opposition Leader Shehbaz Sharif to speak, the no-trust resolution proceedings were postponed till March 25, according to the Speaker’s office.
Following that, he refused to allow the opposition’s no-confidence resolution to be tabled, as is customary in parliamentary proceedings. According to Qaiser, when a member of the lower house dies away, the agenda was typically postponed until the next day.
Despite the fact that Shehbaz was the head of the opposition, it was traditional in Pakistani parliament for the speaker to enable him to speak whenever he wished.
In Pakistan’s history, there has never been a prime minister who served his or her whole term, and Prime Minister Imran Khan is facing the most serious challenge to his or her leadership since he was elected in 2018.
Having been shocked by the outcome of the Senate elections, the premier willingly asked for an election of confidence in March of last year. His trust was restored by the National Assembly when he garnered 178 votes, six more than the number of votes that were required.
