Mazari calls off today’s Punjab Assembly session

LAHORE - The Punjab Assembly (PA) deputy speaker on Sunday withdrew his earlier order regarding convening of provincial assembly session today (Monday) that was summoned to hold voting on the no-confidence motion against the Speaker. PA Deputy Speaker Sardar Dost Mazari, who was thrashed, punched and manhandled during Saturday’s session at the hands of his PTI party members on conducting elections for new chief minister, seems to be indecisive regarding his decisions. He summoned provincial assembly session for today (Monday) at 11:30am for holding vote on no-trust motion against Speaker Ch Parvez Elahi, but after a few moments, the deputy withdrew his order and cancelled it. The deputy speaker had already issued agenda of the session that consisted of voting on no-confidence motion against speaker in his now-withdrawn-order.
