On Monday, Imran Khan, former Prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman hinted that he would go back to the National Assembly to build up a caretaker government while claiming to be in contact with “PML-N lawmakers.
Last year after the former Prime Minister’s ouster by a vote of no-confidence, the 131 PTI lawmakers resigned. However, the National Assembly speaker has yet to accept their resignations and the PTI legislators to confirm that their resignations are “real and voluntary”.
The Former Prime Minister announced the decision to turn the tables on the prime minister in an interview with a local TV channel. “If we do not return to the National Assembly, the government will form the caretaker setup in collaboration with Raja Riaz as they do not have any ethics, he said in his place in Lahore.
Imran Khan claimed that this time PTI would get a majority. At the same time, Shehbaz Sharif would struggle to prove a majority in the house,” he also said that president Arif Alvi would soon ask Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to secure a vote of confidence from the National Assembly.
In today’s meeting, the party will decide on the timing of the confidence vote and other plans to put the current government to the test, according to Khan, who was forced from office in April of last year after the then-opposition used a vote of no-confidence.
