Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to resign from assemblies after the election of the new prime minister tomorrow. Former information minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that the party will begin to resign from all assemblies, starting from the National Assembly tomorrow.
Meanwhile, former prime minister Imran Khan took to Twitter, announcing the beginning of a ‘freedom struggle’ against a ‘foreign conspiracy of regime change’. He added that the people of Pakistan always defended their sovereignty and democracy.
Last night, the no-trust motion against Imran Khan succeeded, leading to his ouster as the leader of the House and the country’s PM. Acting speaker Ayaz Sadiq announced that 174 members voted in favour of the no-confidence motion. The voting began after 12 AM as the then government had tried its best to delay the proceedings of the session through lengthy speeches.
The session of the National Assembly was presided over by Pakistan Muslim League – N (PML-N) leader Ayaz Sadiq when erstwhile speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser announced his resignation after expressing his refusal to hold voting on the no-trust motion.
