Opposition leaders react to SC’s decision to nullify the deputy speaker’s ruling and restore NA!
On Thursday, SC announced its reserved judgment on suo motu notice of the April 3 ruling of National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri.
The apex court has ordered National Assembly Speaker Asad Qasier to summon the session on Saturday (April 9) at 10 am to allow the vote on the no-confidence motion against prime minister Imran Khan.
The apex court ruled that President Dr. Arif Alvi’s decision to dissolve the National Assembly was “illegal” and restored Prime Minister Imran Khan and his cabinet as well.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari took to Twitter to celebrate SC decision and termed it the Opposition’s victory.
“Democracy is the best revenge. Long live Bhutto, Pakistan Zindabad!” tweeted Bilawal in response to the SC verdict.
