PML-N starts mustering support for no-confidence against KP Assembly speaker



Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has started contacting other political parties for submitting no-confidence vote against Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser.

Talking to a private TV channel, PML-N’s parliamentary leader in KP Assembly Aurangzeb Nalotha said that the assembly speaker has a controversial standing.

He said that the speaker first took stance against the Centre and then approached the high court over CPEC, hurting the national unity.

The PML-N leader said that the Qaiser had said he would approach court along with leaders of other political parties but there was no other leader accompanying him.

He said that with prior permission from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the no-confidence motion would be submitted against the speaker. He claimed that apart from the opposition, the disgruntled PTI leaders would support the motion against the speaker.

KP assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser on Monday had submitted a petition regarding China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in the Peshawar High Court (PHC). The petition which names the federal government as a party seeks to remove reservations over the CPEC project. Asad Qaiser said he approached the court for the rights of people, adding the CPEC was a project of the entire country.
