Pervaiz Ashraf, the speaker of the National Assembly, has refused to accept PTI resignations “en masse.”

Date:

PTI senators must appear in person one by one for resignation verification.

Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Speaker of the National Assembly (NA), refused to accept the resignations of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) senators collectively on Thursday, insisting that resignations will be accepted only if party members appear until him individually.

A PTI delegation met with the NA speaker in his chamber to discuss the verification of party lawmakers’ resignations.

Former NA Speaker Asad Qaiser led the delegation, which also included Qasim Suri, Amir Dogar, Amjad Niazi, and Faheem Khan.

During a press conference in Islamabad, he stated that he has no feelings for any PTI member.

Accepting a resignation is a difficult task, and previous resignations were accepted in accordance with the Constitution, according to the speaker.

According to Ashraf, the Constitution requires an MNA’s resignation to be written in his own handwriting.

“In politics, doors for negotiations are never closed, and we should resolve our differences through communication,” the speaker said.

“In politics, doors for negotiations are never closed, and we should resolve our differences through communication,” the speaker said.

Yesterday, the NA speaker issued a final call to PTI lawmakers to confirm their resignations.

It was decided at a meeting presided over by the speaker and attended by federal ministers and the deputy speaker.

The meeting was informed that the speaker had completed all legal requirements for verification of resignations and had given PTI legislators a deadline of Thursday.

It should be noted that PTI MNAs have repeatedly failed to appear before NA Speaker Raja Parvaiz Ashraf to verify their resignations.

Previously, the NA speaker decided to reconvene PTI MNAs in his chamber one by one for verification of their resignations in accordance with the NA Rules of Procedure and Conduct of Business, 2007.

However, the PTI has objected to the procedure and has demanded that its lawmakers accept tendered resignations all at once, without appearing in person.

The decision not to attend the assembly was made during a huddle in which PTI Vice President Shah Mahmood Qureshi lamented how Raja Pervez Ashraf ‘ignored’ his letter, which was sent earlier this month, to accept their resignations immediately.

The speaker had previously invited opposition party legislators from June 6 to 10 for verification of their resignations, but none of them had shown up.
