Shahbaz Sharif, the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and President of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), tabled a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan in the lower house on Monday.

During the session, Deputy NA Speaker Qasim Suri requested that all members of Parliament who supported the motion stand up so that their votes could be counted. According to the Constitution, the motion must be supported by 20% of the MNAs present in the assembly.

The deputy speaker approved a discussion on the no-confidence motion after counting the members who stood up in support of it, adding that it will take place on Thursday, March 31, at 4 p.m.

According to sources, the NA speaker met with Opposition leaders shortly before the session, and Qaiser assured them that the session would be adjourned once the no-confidence motion was tabled.

According to sources, the leaders agreed that the session would resume and the house would debate the no-trust motion.
