IHC orders security arrangements for Imran's appearance in court today

Opposition to approach IHC for peaceful voting on no-trust motion


ISLAMABAD: The United Opposition has decided to present a peaceful and uninterrupted vote to the court on a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

According to details, joint opposition has announced to file a constitutional plea and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Secretary General Ahsan Iqbal and JUI-F’s Maulana Ghafoor Haideri will approach Islamabad High Court (IHC).

Opposition states that no member of National Assembly should be stopped from exercising his constitutional right and a petition in this regard will be filed in the high court tomorrow (Wednesday).

Earlier in the day, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Tuesday challenged Prime Minister and his cabinet members to stop lawmakers from entering National Assembly.

Speaking to media sources, former prime minister Shahid Kakan Abbasi said opposition lawmakers were being pressured by biased accountability drives as they were being notified by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

Imran Khan used foul language, the PML-N leader said, and instead of bringing the matter to parliament, the PTI decided to take it to the streets.

On the other hand, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Senator Sherry Rehman said on Tuesday that holding a public rally in D-Chowk on the day of the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan was illegal and unconstitutional of.

Sherry Rehman, in a tweet, said that rally as well as government’s plans to encircle lawmakers are illegal. She, while saying that government is putting country on track to unrest, added that government will be responsible if clashes erupt between workers of political parties.

The PPP leader said that if PTI has required numbers it should challenge the no-confidence motion in the parliament as the decision to send Imran Khan packing will be taken in the National Assembly instead of D-Chowk.

He claimed that PTI politics started at D-Chowk and will end in the same place.
