Urges SC to declare Dy Speaker’s ruling null and void

Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) head Maulana Fazlur Rehman has demanded a guarantee from the judiciary, establishment and parliament to protect the Constitution remaining within their institutional limits.

Maulana Fazlur Rehman addressed a press conference on Wednesday and demanded the Supreme Court of Pakistan to declare the ruling of the Deputy Speaker null and void.

He appreciated the Supreme Court’s suo moto notice on the National Assembly Deputy Speaker’s ruling but said there is public unrest over the normal proceedings of this highly sensitive case.

He said that Imran Khan violated the country’s constitution and the next Friday will be marked as “Day of Protection for Constitution” and Pakistan’s existence would be in danger if constitution is violated.

Maulana Fazl said free, fair and transparent elections could not be held under this so-called government so a new prime minister should be elected to give a new elections schedule.

The PDM head said Imran Khan is no longer the Prime Minister, President Alvi has verbally appointed him to the post so he has no authority to use public resources, PM’s Office and Secretariat.

Joint Opposition’s leader said it is not uncommon for 197 members of parliament to be declared traitors. He said the threatening letter on which the drama is based is like a storm in a cup.

He said the officials of the Security Committee have clarified that there is nothing about any external interference in the text of the letter.

The PDM chairman said that the crisis emerged due to the unconstitutional ruling of the deputy speaker and the crisis has put Pakistan’s sovereignty at stake. NNI
