Opposition to bring no-trust motion against PTI govt PPP to be given task to seek backing of PML-Q, Jahangir

Observer Report

The joint Opposition has decided to bring a no-confidence motion against the PTI-led government, sources privy to the matter said on Monday.

A meeting of the PML-N Central Executive Committee, headed by its supremo Nawaz Sharif is expected to give its nod to move the no-trust motion against the government, the sources within the party said, adding that PPP will be informed once the CEC gives go-ahead to the motion, reports a news channel.

It is not decided yet whether the no-confidence motion will be tabled first against Prime Minister Imran Khan or National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser.

In a bid to make the no-confidence motion succeed, a strategy will be devised after consultation with the Pakistan Democratic Movement chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.

PPP will be given a task to seek the support of the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid on the no-trust motion, the sources said, adding that PPP may also contact the disgruntled leader of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Jahangir Khan Tareen to send the PTI government home.

It is pertinent to mention here that Makhdoom Ahmed Mehmood is already in contact with Tareen. A few more disgruntled leaders of the PTI from PPP and KP will also be contacted to ensure the success of the no-confidence motion.

Pakistan Democratic Movement chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman has convened a meeting of the heads of the component parties of the alliance in Islamabad. The meeting will be held with Maulana Fazlur Rehman in the chair in the federal capital on Thursday or Friday, said the sources.

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, vice-president Maryam Nawaz and other opposition leaders are expected to attend the crucial session. Besides making other important decisions, the meeting will also decide a date for tabling the no-trust motion against the National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser.
