Imran Khan, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and his party The PTI’s strategy of not attending the National Assembly proceedings on Sunday has changed, and the Prime Minister, along with all of his party members, will now attend the NA session, where the no-trust motion will be voted on.
According to reports in the media, the government is hopeful that the no-trust motion against the prime minister will be defeated, and has instructed party lawmakers to attend tomorrow’s National Assembly proceedings (Sunday).
It was previously decided that MNAs from the Treasury benches would not vote on a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan on the day of the vote.
As the ruling party’s chairman, PM Imran Khan issued a set of instructions to the PTI MNAs, instructing them not to attend the National Assembly (NA) session on the day of the no-confidence vote.
It was decided that no MNA would stay in Parliament House on voting day, and that any lawmaker who disobeyed the party chairman’s instructions would face the imposition of Article 63. (A). All PTI legislators received the set of instructions individually.
Following PM Khan’s directives, Senator Faisal Javed Khan shared a copy of the instructions with the party’s lawmakers, urging them to stay away from the no-trust plot.
