The leader of the opposition in the National Assembly and their Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif, called it a “epoch-making day” after the Supreme Court ruled in their favour.
United Opposition members celebrated on April 7 when the country’s top court overturned the deputy speaker’s decision to reject the no-confidence motion and reinstated Pakistan’s National Assembly. This was a big victory for the opposition. Opposition leaders in the National Assembly and Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif praised the Supreme Court’s decision. They called it “an epoch-making day” and said the court’s decision was a good thing.
‘Day that changed the world’
Sharif congratulated everyone who had supported opposition demands and fought to make sure that the constitution was “supreme.” He said that “politics of lies, deception and allegations have been buried today.”
Prime Minister Imran Khan will be replaced by PML-N President Sharif if a no-confidence vote is passed against him. Sharif called the court’s decision a victory for the people of Pakistan.
The day that changed everything! Mubarak to everyone who supported, defended, and pushed for the Constitution to be supreme. Lie, cheat, and accuse politics have been put to rest today. The people of Pakistan have won, so they are very happy. “God bless Pakistan,” Shehbaz Sharif said in an email.
It was Maryam Nawaz Sharif, the daughter of former Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who came to the party. Maryam has been very vocal about getting Khan out of power. A lot of people see her as a rebellious leader who put together the opposition to fight against the PTI-led government in Pakistan.
‘The National Assembly is meeting on April 9th.’
It took the Pakistan Supreme Court five days to make its decision on the no-confidence motion against the country’s Prime Minister and to dissolve the country’s National Assembly, so on Thursday, it made its decision. A bench led by Pakistan’s Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, Umar Ata Bandial, found that the Deputy Speaker’s April 3 ruling was “unconstitutional.”
The five-judge panel said in the verdict: “No confidence motion is still alive.” The bench also said that Imran Khan’s suggestion to President Arif Alvi to dissolve the Assembly was “wrong.” They said that the idea was “wrong.” “The Assembly will be back. The Cabinet will also be back in place. In this case, Imran Khan will still be Prime Minister. The Caretaker PM is no longer in charge.” Further, a meeting of the National Assembly was set to take place on April 9, Saturday, at 10:30 AM (PST).
With this, Imran Khan’s time as Prime Minister is over. The opposition will hammer him in the parliament with a thud. There are more than 172 Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) who don’t want to back the PTI government. This doesn’t even take into account the rebel PTI parliamentarians.
