No-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan rejected
At the same time, a hearing is going on in the Pakistani Supreme Court on Wednesday in the matter of dismissal of the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan and the dissolution of Parliament by the President. President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly on Imran’s recommendation, minutes after National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri rejected a no-confidence motion against the prime minister on Sunday. Imran lost a majority in the 342-member lower house of parliament after two key allies withdrew from the ruling coalition.
Chief Justice Omar Ata Bandiyal said
The court will consider all the orders and actions of the Prime Minister and the President regarding the dissolution of the National Assembly. The Supreme Court has taken suo moto cognizance of this development and a five-member bench heard the matter on Monday and Tuesday. President Alvi, Supreme Court Bar Association, and all political parties made defendants in the case.
The lawyers of the government and the opposition presented their arguments regarding the decision of the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly. Justice Bandiyal had said during the hearing that even if the Speaker of the National Assembly refers to Article 5 of the Constitution, the no-confidence motion cannot dismissed.
