The much-anticipated session of the Pakistan National Assembly (NA) to deliberate on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan filed by the joint opposition, has been adjourned till March 28, The News reported.
NA Speaker Asad Qaiser adjourned the session till March 28 citing parliamentary traditions.
“Prior to this, NA sessions have been adjourned 24 times due to the demise of fellow parliamentarians,” Qaiser said before announcing the adjournment of Friday’s session.
Amid claims of the joint opposition to have obtained the support of required numbers for the success of the no-confidence motion against Khan, a 15-point agenda was issued by the NA Secretariat for the 41st session on Thursday night, with the no-trust motion on the ‘Orders of the Day’.
The opposition had submitted a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister on March 8 and the 14-day constitutional deadline as per Article 54(3) to convene the NA session had expired on March 21.
“This House is of the view that the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, has lost the confidence of the majority of the members of the National Assembly of Pakistan; therefore he should cease to hold office,” said the text of the resolution.
