At the onset of the session, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan moved a motion seeking to adjourn the session and use the assembly hall for the meeting of Parliamentary Committee on National Security, set to be held at 6:00pm. The motion was rejected after voting.

Consequently, the deputy speaker opened the floor for questions, but the opposition lawmakers insisted that a vote on the no-confidence motion be called today. Suri adjourned the session till Sunday after he termed the opposition’s attitude as “non-serious”.

The resolution against the embattled premier was tabled by the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif on March 28 tabled the resolution against PM Khan when it was approved for debate the very same day.
