NA speaker accepts 11 PTI MNAs’ resignations

Maryam warns ECP of sit-in if verdict over PTI foreign funding case delayed
The National Assembly speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf on Thursday accepted resignations of 11 Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MNAs.
The Speaker accepted the resignation by exercising the powers conferred under Clause (1) of Article 64 of the Constitution of Pakistan.
After the consultations with coalition partners, the NA speaker accepted the resignations of PTI MNAs. All the PTI MNAs have tendered their resignations after the success of the no-confidence motion against former prime minister Imran Khan.
Those whose resignations were accepted include Shireen Mazari, Ali Muhammad Khan, Fazl Muhammad Khan, Shaukat Khan, Fakhar Zaman Khan, Farrukh Habib, Ijaz Shah, Akram Cheema, Jamil Ahmad Khan, Shandana Gulzar and Abdul Shakoor Shaad.
Maryam warns ECP of sit-in if verdict over PTI foreign funding case delayed
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Vice President Maryam Nawaz on Thursday said if the foreign funding case is delayed then all the parties will stage a sit-in outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
After the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) meeting, the PML-N vice president said that the full court was not formed due to a unilateral and unfair verdict.
Lashing out at former primer Imran Khan, Maryam said because ‘apple of the eye’ was favored, that’s why the full court was not formed.
This verdict overturned the previous decision of the court, added PML-N Vice-President.
Maryam Nawaz said that Pervaiz Elahi will always be called ‘Judicial Chief Minister’. The CM post was taken away from Hamza Shahbaz, she added.
Maryam said the constitution was made by the elected representatives of the people but a controversial three-member bench is deliberately created. Such verdicts cannot be accepted with a kowtowing, PML-N vice president added.
Maryam Nawaz said that the decision on the foreign funding case should be pronounced soon. The ECP should bring out the secret account of Imran Khan, added Maryam.
