ISLAMABAD: The outgoing Speaker National Assembly, Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, announced the schedule for the elections of the speaker and deputy speaker’s slots.

The elections for the posts of speaker and deputy speaker are scheduled to take place on Friday (March 1, 2024).

According to Article 53 of the Constitution of Pakistan, the National Assembly is mandated to elect a Speaker and Deputy Speaker at its first meeting following a general election, with the process taking precedence over any other business.

The voting process will be conducted through a secret ballot, with the candidate receiving the majority of votes being elected as the new speaker of the House.

Subsequently, the new speaker will announce the schedule for the deputy speaker’s election, which will follow the same procedure as the secret ballot. Strict security measures were implemented to ensure the safety of the session, with heavy contingents of police and Rangers deployed outside the Parliament House, and entry for unauthorized individuals onto the premises was prohibited.
