ISLAMABAD: The federal government on Thursday decided to accept resignations of some Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) after PDM’s chairman Maulana Fazl-ul-Rehman urged the coalition government to accept PTI’s MPs resignations.
It is worth mentioning that in April, PTI had decided to resign from National Assembly after former Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he would not sit in the assemblies. The then-Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Suri approved the resignations of the PTI MNAs.
As per details, the decision was taken during a meeting of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) under the chairmanship of Maulana Fazlur Rehamn. PML-N has also demanded to accept resignations of eight PTI lawmakers, including former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan.
Meanwhile, National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf has started consultation with Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ayaz Sadiq in a bid to accept the resignations of PTI lawmakers.
The legislative department of National Assembly has asserted that homework in this regard has been completed while the final decision would be taken by the NA Speaker.
Earlier, NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf summoned PTI MNAs for the verification of their resignations but no one turned up. The NA Secretariat sent letters to all PTI members who tendered resignations on April 11, 2022.
