PM Imran Khan to take vote of confidence on March 6

News Desk:

Prime Minister, Imran Khan would take a vote of confidence from the National Assembly on March 6. The NA session summoned on Saturday (March 6). The premier had decided to seek vote of confidence in the aftermath of victory of former prime minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gailani in the recently held Senate elections.

Chaudhary Fawad Hussain, the federal minister for Science and Technology announced this on social media network Twitter. The premier would also address the nation at 7:30 tonight.

The foreign minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi had announced on Thursday that the premier would take a vote of confidence after losing a hotly contested Senate seat.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) candidate Syed Yousaf Raza Gailani won the election against the ruling coalition’s joint candidate Hafeez Sheikh.

“Those standing with Imran Khan will be seen on one side and those who are not, and think they like the ideology of the PPP and PML-N have every right to join their ranks,” Qureshi had said.

He had urged PTI workers to hold onto the belief that the PTI would compete with the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement. “In this fight, the nation is watching who stands where,” the foreign minister had said. He also assured PTI’s voters that the “struggle” would continue.

“In my opinion, today is a sad day for democracy. Those who claimed to be the torchbearers of democracy have killed the principles of democracy,” he added.
