On December 22, PTI MNAs Will Verify Resignations In Person


The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has resolved that its members of the National Assembly would submit their resignations in writing to Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf for verification.

On December 22, PTI sources stated that 123 of its MNAs will visit the NA speaker to submit their resignations. They further said that before heading to house, the lawmakers will meet in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa House in Islamabad.

The PTI MNAs will be led to parliament by PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi.

The previous day, Qureshi had taken over for PTI Chairman Imran Khan as the party’s parliamentary group leader.

As for Senator Shibli Faraz’s request for the NA to accept the resignations of PTI MNAs, the NA speaker ruled against him, noting that any decision in this matter would be within constitutional limitations.

The Speaker of the House has revealed that several PTI members have privately begged him to reject their resignations. Pervaiz elaborated by saying that in such a case, the MNA must personally visit the speaker to verify their handwritten resignations.
