Opposition has moved no confidence against Speaker as well as Deputy Speaker
The united opposition has filed a no-confidence motion against Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri after the Speaker of the National Assembly. Now question arises who will preside over tomorrow’s session?
At present, there are no-confidence motions in the National Assembly against the Prime Minister as well as no-confidence motions against Speaker Asad Qaiser and Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri.
According to the National Assembly Rules, neither the Speaker nor the Deputy Speaker will preside over the meeting in which the no-confidence motion to remove them is under consideration.
The panel of chairs in the current session of the National Assembly includes Amjad Ali Khan, Manza Hassan, Imran Khattak, Ayaz Sadiq, Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah and Engineer Sabir Hussain Qaim Khani.
However, according to Assembly Rules, Speaker Asad Qaiser and Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri may preside over the meeting on the day of voting on the no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister.
It may be recalled that yesterday the Supreme Court had declared the rolling of the Deputy Speaker unconstitutional and had restored the National Assembly.
