Asad Umar, the leader of the PTI, stated on Monday that emails regarding the resignations of 44 PTI legislators from the National Assembly had been given to Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf.
He claimed that the speaker refused to accept all of the resignations at once, therefore Imran Khan, the PTI chairman, and the former prime minister gave the order to make the decision.
The nomination of the opposition leader will come as the next stage, Umar tweeted.
According to Umar, the following lawmakers have decided to revoke their resignations: Muhammad Riaz Khan, Muhammad Yaqoob Sheikh, Shaheen Niaz, Nasarullah Dareshar, Zulfiqar Ali Khan, Nafeesa Inayat Khan, Malik Anwar, Saleh Mohammad, Jai Parkash, Tahir Sadiq, Niaz Ahmed, Raza Nasarullah, Javed Iqbal, Munaza
Fawad Chaudhry, the leader of the PTI, announced that 45 legislators had agreed to reverse their resignations, allowing the party to reclaim the positions of leader of the opposition and parliamentary party.
He continued by saying that the purpose of the action was to remove the “fake” NA opposition leader and stop “turncoats” from casting their votes for Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
Following Umar’s announcement, PTI legislators organized a sit-in outside the home of the NA speaker to demand that their demands be granted right now.
Following the dismissal of PTI leader Imran Khan in April of last year, as many as 123 PTI members of parliament (MNAs) left the lower house of parliament in a mass resignation.
Only 11 of the resignations were ultimately accepted by NA speaker Ashraf, who said that the other legislators will be called in separately for verification.
Ashraf this Friday accepted the resignations of 69 more PTI MNAs and Sheikh Rashid, the leader of the Awami Muslim League, after delaying it for eight months with the threat of a confidence vote.
There have thus far been 80 PTI MNAs whose resignations have been accepted in total.
The PTI is attempting to push early general elections as of today’s development. In order to “send the government home,” it has already dissolved the assemblies of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
