The resolution stated that the house was of the view that Prime Minister Imran Khan had lost the confidence of the majority members of the legislature and should cease holding office.

According to Rule 37(5) of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly, the speaker should allow one or two days for deliberation on the motion.

According to Article 95 of the constitution, a no-confidence motion is supposed to be voted upon in three to seven days after it was moved.

The order of the day also includes discussion on the constitutional amendment bill for the creation of South Punjab province which was put forth by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

The session for the tabling of the no-confidence motion was requisitioned on March 8 by the joint opposition.

Earlier, the 41st session of the National Assembly [2018] was adjourned following the offering of prayers for deceased member of National Assembly, Khayal Zaman.
