Apr 7, 2022: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry tweeted that PM Imran Khan has convened a cabinet meeting on Friday.
Fawad said on Twitter that Prime Minister Imran Khan had convened a cabinet meeting on Friday morning, after which he would chair a meeting of the parliamentary committee.
“Prime Minister Imran Khan will address the nation later in the day,” he wrote on Twitter.
In a previous tweet, Fawad had said that the “unfortunate” decision of the Supreme Court will deepen political crisis in the country.
Reacting to the order on the Deputy Speaker’s ruling to dismiss the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, Fawad said early elections could have brought stability to the country.
“Unfortunately, the importance of the people has been overlooked,” Fawad wrote on Twitter.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) Murad Raas asked supporters not to be disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision, saying that the “prime minister has to make his move next”.
Their remarks come after the Supreme Court’s unanimous decision that set aside the ruling issued by the deputy speaker on the no-trust vote against Prime Minister Imran and restored the National Assembly.
The court declared President Dr Arif Alvi’s decision to dissolve the National Assembly “illegal” and restored PM Imran as well as his cabinet.
The apex court also ordered National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser to convene the session on Saturday (April 9) at 10:30 am, saying that the session cannot be adjourned without the conclusion of the no-trust motion.
“If the no-confidence motion against the prime minister succeeds, then the assembly will appoint the new prime minister,” the court’s order said.
The order further noted that the government cannot interfere in the participation of any lawmaker in the assembly session.
