Speaker’s powers not unlimited: Attorney General Khalid Javed Khan

ISLAMABAD: Attorney General Khalid Javed Khan said on Wednesday the powers of the National Assembly Speaker were not unlimited. The Speaker would have to hold voting on the no-trust resolution in seven days once moved in the assembly.

The AG was speaking in a news  programme hosted by Hamid Mir.

When the host asked the AG if he saw a constitutional crisis if the Speaker failed to conduct voting, the AG did not agree.

He said voting would take place as it could not be withheld for an indefinite period. “The way the voting is held is an internal matter of the House”, the AG observed. He, however, said there was no chance of voting on the day the no-confidence motion is moved.
