NA speaker accepts another 43 resignations of PTI MNAs

The National Assembly (NA) Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf on Tuesdat approved the resignations of another 43 lawmakers of the opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Earlier, 70 resignations had been suddenly accepted by NA speaker; following which the PTI leadership announced protest.

Resignations of two members had not bee accepted today, due to their leave request.

The secretariat stated that the resigned members were called several times for verification.

While, the Assembly Secretariat sends the accepted resignations to ECP; to de-seat the MNAs.

Now ECP is due to announce the de-notification of the PTI lawmakers.

Once the members are de-notified, none of the resigned PTI MNAs will remain part of the national assembly.

The move came after the threats from the PTI to return to parliament only to foil a vote of confidence, which the party hoped President Dr Arif Alvi would seek from Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
