Ali Wazir’s production order issued

Shehbaz demands ‘foolproof security’ for Opp on April 3

National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Friday issued the production order for Ali Wazir, Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) lawmaker from South Waziristan, two days ahead of voting on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

The production order of the detained lawmaker was issued under the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly 2007, said a statement by the NA Secretariat. It came on the heels of a petition filed by MNA Mohsin Dawar in Islamabad High Court seeking the release of Wazir to enable him to cast his vote in the no-confidence motion against the prime minster. It said an application was moved before the speaker for passing a production order so as to ensure the participation of Ali Wazir in voting on the no-confidence motion on Sunday but it was denied. “However, the application was not entertained and dismissed by the learned speaker, despite the fact that in two earlier rounds, i.e. passing of budget and for casting of vote for the seat of senators, he was produced before Senate to participate in the session and to exercise the right of vote. However, this time around, the same right was denied illegally as the ruling party is perhaps of the opinion that Mr Ali Wazir would cast his vote against them apart from the discrimination meted out to said Mr Ali Wazir,” the petition read. It said, “If the instant application is not allowed and the production orders of Mr Ali Wazir, Member National Assembly NA-50 are not passed, he shall suffer an irreparable loss and a democratic process shall be hampered.”
