Hammad claims Pakistan’s current growth rate stood at 5.5pc
Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday called upon the Speaker of the National Assembly to convene a session of the lower house “as soon as possible” in order to “wrap up” the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the prime minister, adding that the country was not in a position to afford political chaos for a long time.
The opposition on Tuesday had submitted in the National Assembly Secretariat a no-confidence motion against the prime minister and also requisitioned the National Assembly because it is not in session currently.
After this requisition, the speaker has a maximum of 14 days to summon the session, which means he must call the lower house in session by March 22.
Addressing a press conference in Islama bad, Chaudhry claimed that the PTI had the support of at least 184 lawmakers in the National Assembly — sufficient to doom the opposition’s motion.
