The opposition has put Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Mahmood Khan in its crosshairs and submitted a no-trust motion against him in the KP Assembly, following a similar move against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
A delegation of senior lawmakers submitted the no-trust motion against PM Khan.
“We beg to move that leave may be granted under sub-rule (1) of rule 18-D of the Provincial Assembly of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Procedure and Conduct of Business Rules to move a resolution of no-confidence against the Chief Minister under Article 136 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” the notice read.
The no-confidence resolution read that the chief minister had ceased to possess a confidence of the majority of the members of the assembly, and hence he should cease to hold this position.
Meanwhile, National Assembly will convene a session for voting on the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan at 10:30am tomorrow (Saturday) in accordance with the orders by the Supreme Court.
In the agenda for the National Assembly issued on Friday, the voting on the no-confidence motion is at the fourth position in the six-point agenda.
