What Will Happen After No Confidence Move on Saturday?

Following the Supreme Court’s rejection of the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the National Assembly is bound by the decision of the Supreme Court to convene a session of the lower house of Parliament on Saturday.

Following the Supreme Court's rejection of the opposition's no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the National Assembly is bound by the decision of the Supreme Court to convene a session of the lower house of Parliament on Saturday.

Following the Supreme Court’s rejection of the opposition’s no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister, the Speaker of the National Assembly is bound by the decision of the Supreme Court to convene a session of the lower house of Parliament on Saturday.

According to the website, according to paragraph 9 of the order issued by the Supreme Court on Thursday, it is the responsibility of the Speaker to convene a meeting of the Assembly for the current session and convene it and do so immediately.

I will conduct the proceedings of the House after 10:30 am on Saturday in accordance with the order issued for April 3, 2022, and read it as stated in Article 95 of the Constitution and as required by National Assembly Rules 2007 with Rule 37 of Rules and Regulations.

It is likely that the National Assembly Secretariat will issue an order of the day for today’s meeting.

The meeting will not be adjourned until the motion is disposed of or the resolution is voted on.

The opposition had filed a no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister in the National Assembly Secretariat on March 7 and the Speaker had tabled it in the House on March 25.

By law, they were required to vote on the resolution by April 3. However, the April 3 order contained six points, including voting on the resolution.

Item 4 of the agenda of the National Assembly on April 3 states that ‘Voting on the following resolution proposed by the Leader of the Opposition Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif on March 28, 2022:’ This House of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan declares that it has no confidence in the Prime Minister Mr. Imran Khan and as a result, he resigns under Article (4) ibid.

Interestingly, when the Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Suri adjourned the sitting on April 3, the opposition convened the meeting on its own. The number of members on the government benches was 144.

Experts insist that although a no-confidence motion has been filed against Speaker Asad Qaiser, he can still preside over the House on Saturday.

He referred to Article 53 (4) of the Constitution which states that if a resolution to remove the Speaker or Deputy Speaker is being considered, he will not preside over the session of the Assembly.

In his opinion, the laws only prevent Asad Qaiser from presiding over a meeting where a no-confidence motion against him is being considered and he will be able to preside over Saturday’s proceedings.
