Opposition lawmakers told to stay in Islamabad


The leadership of opposition parties has instructed their parliamentarians to stay in the federal capital to ensure their presence in a National Assembly session that could be convened on March 25 for voting on the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Opposition leaders said the speaker of the lower house of the parliament could convene the assembly session any time and directed the lawmakers belonging to their parties to stay put in Islamabad.

They said the speaker cannot delay calling the session as per the law and Constitution.

The NA speaker is bound to convene the assembly session by Monday (March 21) after submission of the requisition notice to the National Assembly Secretariat on March 8 by the joint opposition and he could not delay convening the session beyond 14 days.

A session of the National Assembly will be convened on Monday but it won’t take up any agenda.
