  • Maryam Nawaz claims PM Imran “cursed and threatened Opposition and other countries.”
  • Adds PM “does not have a right to put Pakistan at disadvantage.”
  • “Shut him in a room, or else if a monkey gets hold of a matchstick, there is a threat of fire!” she wrote. 

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif on Monday once again lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, and said that his speech a day ago — directed at the envoys of the European Union as well as the Opposition — shows that he is “shaken by the current uproar in the country.”

As reported by Geo News,  Shahbaz said that the no-confidence motion to oust the PTI-led government has been demanded by the people of Pakistan. 

The Opposition leader also reiterated that no matter how much “foul language” PM Imran uses, it will not stop the no-confidence motion. 

“While PM Imran has spoiled his political reputation, he should not tarnish Pakistan’s image before the world,” the PML-N president said.

Maryam Nawaz mocks PM’s speech

On the other hand, PML-N Vice-President Maryam Nawaz also reacted to the premier’s speech and said that “Imran Khan has not only cursed and threatened the Opposition, but he has done the same to other countries as well.” 

Taking to Twitter, Maryam added that the premier “does not have a right to put Pakistan at a disadvantaged position due to his political disagreements.”

“Shut him in a room, or else if a monkey gets hold of a matchstick, there would be a threat of fire!” she ironically wrote, suggesting that the no-confidence motion is vital in order to get PM Imran off his seat. 

PM’s address to a rally in Vehari

A day prior, PM Imran Khan had slammed envoys of 22 EU countries for urging Pakistan to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine while addressing a rally in Tehsil Mailsi of the Vehari District.

“I ask EU ambassadors, did you thank us? Did you say we helped you in your war? Did you appreciate us?” PM Imran questioned the EU envoys.

Launching an attack on former president Asif Ali Zardari and ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif, PM Imran said that they did not stop the drone attacks as their wealth was stashed in Western countries. 

Starting with his arch-rival Nawaz Sharif, the premier reminded the public how the former prime minister acted like a “Bollywood star” in a bid to leave the country.

“If PML-N is listening to me, then think: can a jackal ever become a leader?” asked PM Imran. The premier claimed that the PML-N was moving the no-confidence motion as Nawaz was missing Pakistan.

Targeting the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif, PM Imran said that if someone wants to learn about him, they should find “Maqsood chaprasi”.

Continuing to attack the PML-N, the premier said that Nawaz and his daughter Maryam abuse the army while Shahbaz “starts polishing any boots he finds”.

Speaker of the National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq declared Shehbaz Sharif the 24th Prime Minister of the 16th National Assembly of Pakistan and the House Leader of the National Assembly’s Lower House after announcing the official results of the polling for the prime minister elections.

The National Assembly session began one hour later than scheduled. The Holy Quran was recited at the beginning of the session, followed by the reading of a Hadith and a Naat and Pakistan’s national hymn. The NA was attended by party heavyweights, PMLN chief Nawaz Sharif, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto, and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

The National Assembly Hall’s doors were closed per the directives of NA Speaker Ayaz Sadiq, and the voting procedure was finished in which Akhter Mengal and JUI-F did not take part in the voting process.  

Members of the Sunni Ittehad Council, supported by the PTI, staged protests and rallies against the PDM 2.0, an alliance comprising eight parties that is poised to form the central government. The PDM leaders are accused by PTI of stealing the mendate. The claims have been denied by the PPP and PMLN.

Aun Chaudhry, the head of the IPP, arrived at Parliament House. hundreds of Police, Rangers, and FC troops have been deployed, and there are strict security measures in place both inside and outside the Parliament for the National Assembly session.

Cars arriving at Parliament House are permitted entry after being inspected, but most significantly, regular visitors are not permitted during National Assembly sessions.

Ayaz Sadiq, the speaker of the National Assembly, gave the oath to Jam Kamal, a member of the MNA from Balochistan and a former chief minister of the province.

Shehbaz Sharif was chosen prime minister of Pakistan on Sunday for a second time by the country’s recently established parliament. The creation of a coalition government had been delayed for three weeks due to unpredictable national elections.

Speaker of the National Assembly Ayaz Sadiq said, “Shehbaz Sharif is declared to have been elected the prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan,” after revealing Sharif had received 201 votes, more than the necessary 169 votes in the house

With 92 votes, he defeated Omar Ayub, the contender supported by imprisoned former prime minister Imran Khan.

The Khan-backed Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) party loudly protested the statement. The MPs chanted chants claiming Sharif had won election fraud and demanded Khan’s release.

A mobile internet outage, arrests, and violence during the run-up to the election on February 8 caused problems for the proceedings, and the results’ abnormally long wait led to claims that the vote was manipulated.

Sharif resumed his position, which he maintained until August, when a caretaker administration was established in place after parliament was dissolved in advance of the elections. No one party took home the majority.

Sharif, 72, is the younger brother of Nawaz Sharif, the former prime minister who led the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) party’s election campaign.
