PTI ends boycott of Parliament

Staff Reporter


Ending its months-long boycott of Parliament, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced to raise the issue of Panama Papers in the National Assembly on Wednesday.
“We will present two resolutions in Parliament and submit an adjournment motion tomorrow,” chairman Imran Khan told reporters in Islamabad on Tuesday.
Last month, the Supreme Court’s five-judge bench started hearing a slew of petitions filed in the wake of the Panama Papers, which revealed that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s family members owned offshore companies in international tax havens.

The PTI chief said his party boycotted Parliament as the PM had discredited the house by refraining to answer the allegations leveled against him.
Responding to a question if his decision was influenced by fear of disqualification from the NA, Imran said his party wouldn’t attend the sessions merely for attendance.
