The session of the National Assembly of Pakistan adjourned till 10pm IST today after Speaker Asad Qaiser refused to vote on the vote of no confidence in Prime Minister Imran Khan, Geo News reported.
According to Dawnthis is the fourth time the session has adjourned today.
According to Geo NewsQaiser said he had a 30-year relationship with Imran Khan and could not end it, even if it meant facing contempt of court.
The opposition, which is growing frustrated with the delays, has accused the president of colluding with Khan to delay the no-confidence motion.
PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Khan’s decision to convene his cabinet shows there is “clearly no intention to vote” on the confidence motion today.
debate in NA is illegal. is not part of the agenda of the April 3 censorship session. The clearly dishonest 10:30 a.m. agenda has yet to begin. Spkr is ignoring requests to enforce the court order. The calling of a cabinet meeting at 9 p.m. clearly shows the intention not to vote today. collusion b/w pm and speaker is clear
