No-confidence motion: Opposition slams NA speaker over ‘biased’ remarks

ISLAMABAD: The combined opposition on Saturday took strong exception to National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser’s remarks about the possibility of failure of the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan. They said that the speaker could not make partisan statements, and he exhibited biased attitude against the opposition.

PPP Parliamentary leader in Senate Sherry Rehman said that was a constitutional instrument which he was trying to obstruct. His act by itself renders himself unfit to preside over any such session, and by saying that the vote of no-confidence was a foreign conspiracy, he was suggesting that the PTI government was only in place due to foreign support. “Is he a PTI office-bearer or the speaker of Pakistan’s National Assembly, where he was supposed to safeguard the integrity of the outcome by remaining neutral,” she added.
