  • PTI files reference seeking to de-seat dissident members.
  • PTI files reference under Article 63(A) against them.
  • NA session on no-trust move takes place today.

ISLAMABAD: The ruling PTI — on behalf of the party chairman Imran Khan — submitted a reference against 20 deviant members to National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser as they aim to get the dissident party members unseated.

The reference against the members — filed under Article 63(A) — was handed over to the speaker by PTI’s chief whip Amir Dogar. 

According to the text of the reference, deviant members were elected on PTI’s ticket.

Responding to the move, estranged PTI member Noor Alam Khan told journalists that when a person is sitting in a position of power, they “neither think of God nor the people they are ruling”.

The development comes as NA Speaker Asad Qaiser is yet to allow members to cast their votes on the no-confidence motion despite the passage of several hours.

NA Secretariat sources say the session will likely continue till 12 am, while PM Imran Khan has summoned a meeting of the federal cabinet at 9pm.

Even without the support of the dissident members, the joint Opposition has the numbers to oust the prime minister.
