NA Rejects PTI, PAT Demands Unanimously, Rejecting the demands of PTI and PAT, the National Assembly unanimously adopted a resolution to uphold the supremacy of constitution and law.
The resolution was moved by Mahmoud Achakzai in the National Assembly.
Terming the demands of Pakistan Tehreek-Insaaf and Awami Tehreek as unconstitutional, the National Assembly condemned the foul language used by the protesting groups.
The House rejected the demands for the resignation of the PM and dissolution of assemblies. The assembly vowed to uphold the supremacy of the constitution and sovereignty of the parliament.
The NA also reiterated its resolve that the democracy will continue to function and flourish.
Meanwhile, PM Nawaz Sharif will also address the National Assembly to take the House into confidence over country s prevailing situation.
He will also brief the House over government’s performance and highlight the dialogue process with protesting opposition parties Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT).
On Wednesday, federal ministers and opposition politicians met PTI and PAT’s leaders but talks ended for the day with the sides appearing no closer to resolving a week-long political crisis that has rattled the country.
Thousands of followers of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan and populist cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri have been demonstrating outside the parliament building in Islamabad, trying to force Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from office.
