NA session adjourned minutes after MPs demand voting on no-trust motion

ISLAMABAD: The crucial National Assembly session for the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan — which started after much delay — has been adjourned till Sunday 11:30am.

The NA Secretariat had issued the order of the day on Wednesday night, with a discussion on the no-trust move against the premier on the session’s agenda.

NA Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri chaired the session which was attended by more than 172 members from the Opposition benches.

As the session kicked off, during the question and answer session, all the Opposition members demanded the deputy speaker allow voting on the no-confidence motion.

At this, Suri said due to the “non-serious” attitude of the Opposition lawmakers, the session is being adjourned till Sunday — almost 10 minutes after it had started — before the house could debate on the motion.

But despite the session’s adjournment, around 150 Opposition lawmakers staged a sit-in in the lower house. However, they dispersed shortly afterwards.
