The National Assembly (NA) Secretariat on Thursday issued the agenda for the crucial session starting today (Friday).
According to the agenda, besides other issues, the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan has been placed on the agenda for the session of the lower house. The 41st session of the NA will start with the recitation from the Holy Quran. Later, the no-trust motion against the premier will be tabled in the house.
“This House is of the view that PM 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,” read the agenda.
It is pertinent to mention here that the National Assembly will meet at the Parliament House in Islamabad at around 11 am. NA Speaker Asad Qaisar had summoned the session on the requisition made by the opposition lawmakers. The opposition parties had accused the speaker of being biased. However, he had clarified that he would act according to the law and would run the assembly’s proceeding as per Article 95 of the Constitution. Taking to Twitter, Qaiser had written: “I, as the custodian of the National Assembly of Pakistan, will fulfil my constitutional obligations and will proceed in accordance with Article 95 of the Constitution and rule 37 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly, 2007.”
