Won’t Accept ‘Mass’ Resignations, NA Speaker Tells PTI

ISLAMABAD: National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf has said he will not accept PTI members’ resignations without personal hearing and individual verification.

A delegation of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), comprising of former speaker Asad Qaiser senior PTI leaders Qasim Suri, Amir Dogar, Dr Shabbir Hussain, Ataullah, Fahim Khan and Tahir Iqbal, met with Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf on the issue of resignations of the party lawmakers.

Raja Pervez Ashraf told the PTI that for verification of the resignation the party’s lawmakers will be called individually. He added that decision on the resignations will be made as per the Constitution and rules of the assembly.

The speaker said when he accepted a few resignations, one of the PTI lawmakers from Karachi appealed to a high court to stop the resignation.

Mr Ashraf reiterated that doors are not closed in politics there should be contact between politicians.

The PTI announced mass resignations from the lower house of parliament on April 11, a day after the ouster of then prime minister Imran Khan through a vote of no-confidence. The party wants Mr Ashraf accept the resignations collectively; however, the speaker insists he will accept these one by one after the personal appearance of each member in line with constitutional requirement.
