Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to resign from the National Assembly ahead of the election for the new prime minister of Pakistan.
According to details, this decision was taken during the PTI’s Parliamentary Party meeting chaired by Imran Khan in Islamabad.
According to sources, some PTI lawmakers opposed the decision, saying it would give free hand to the rivals in the House.
However, Imran Khan said that he will not sit with the corrupt politicians in the assembly. "I will be the first to resign from the National Assembly," he said.
"We will not sit in this Assembly under any circumstances," Imran Khan said, adding that the PTI will not sit in the Assembly with the people who have robbed Pakistan and who have been "imported by foreign forces".
On the other hand, the NA is set to elect new premier on Monday (today) after Imran Khan was voted out from the office through no-confidence motion on Saturday night.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and PTI Vice President Shah Mahmood Qureshi are in the rum for the office.
Imran Khan has become the first prime minister of Pakistan to be ousted from his office through vote of no-confidence.
On Sunday the National Assembly passed the no-confidence resolution against Imran Khan as 174 MNAs out of 342-member house recorded their votes in favour of the no-trust motion against him.
