The NA Speaker Accepts The Resignations Of 35 More PTI Members


On Friday, Speaker of the National Assembly Raja Pervaiz accepted the resignations of 35 additional members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), causing political instability to persist in the country.

The PTI resigned from the lower chamber of parliament in April 2022, after the ousting of PTI chairman Imran Khan.

The resignations were accepted in line with clause (1) of Article 64 of the Constitution and the norms of procedure and conduct of Business in the NA, as stated in a news statement published by the National Assembly Secretariat.

“In accordance with clause (1) of Article 64 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, read with Rule 43 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly of Pakistan 2007, the Hon’ble Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan has been pleased to accept the resignations of the following Members of the National Assembly with effect from April 11, 2022, the date when the letter of respective resignations was submitted,” said the statement.

Radio Pakistan said that the resignations were accepted as of 11 April 2022, the day on which the resignation letters were received.

After the resignations were accepted, a summary was sent to the ECP so that the PTI legislators could be de-notified.

This week, 70 resignations were accepted after the PTI declared its return to the legislature to test the PM via a no-trust motion.
