NA Session Adjourns Just After 13 Minutes Of Proceeding

ISLAMABAD: The National Assembly session for the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan has been adjourned till Sunday 11:30am.

The NA Secretariat had issued the order of the day for today on Wednesday night, with a discussion on the no-trust move against the premier on the session’s agenda.

The session was held under the chairmanship of NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri, with more than 172 members from the Opposition benches in attendance.

As the session kicked off, during the question and answer session, all the Opposition members demanded the deputy speaker allow voting on the no-confidence motion.

At this, Suri said due to the “non-serious” attitude of the Opposition lawmakers, the session is being adjourned till Sunday — almost 13 minutes after it had started — before the house could debate on the motion.

But despite the session’s adjournment, Opposition lawmakers have staged a sit-in in the lower house.

PM Imran Khan, who waved a “threat letter” at a March 27 rally in Islamabad, has said that the memo warned the country of the consequences if the no-confidence motion does not pass.

Later, several federal ministers, including Fawad Chaudhry and Asad Umar, said that PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) leadership are also involved in the “foreign conspiracy”.
