ISLAMABAD: In a major development, National Assembly Speaker Raja Parvez Ashraf Friday accepted the resignations of 35 more Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf lawmakers, dealing a massive blow to Imran Khan’s plan to dislodge the Shehbaz Sharif government.

Now, after the acceptance of 80 resignations, the strength of PTI MNAs in the assembly has shrunk to 73 including the dissidents. PTI had resigned en masse from the NA after the PTI chairman was ousted through a no-confidence motion in April last year.

“In accordance with clause (1) of Article 64 of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, read with Rule 43 of the Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business in the National Assembly of Pakistan 2007, the Hon’ble Speaker of the National Assembly of Pakistan has been pleased to accept the resignations of the following Members of the National Assembly with effect from April 11, 2022, the date when the letter of respective resignations were submitted,” a statement issued by the National Assembly Secretariat today stated.

The NA speaker had accepted the resignations of 34 PTI MNAs on January 17 after the PTI announced to return to the assembly and threatened to move a no-trust motion against the prime minister.
