Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided not to move the courts after National Assembly (NA) Speaker Raja Pervez Ashraf accepted resignations of 35 senior lawmakers of the party.

The decision came after the party’s senior leader Fawad Chaudhary – one of lawmakers whose resignation had been accepted – had stated that former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan would contest polls on the 33 direct-election seats.

Moreover, the party leadership has decided that all MNAs, whose resignations were accepted by the NA speaker, will run a political campaign for Imran Khan.

Meanwhile, PTI has decided to approach the NA Speaker for consultations over the slot of Opposition Leader and the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC)) of the National Assembly.

Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shah Mehmood Qureshi – who took over the position after Imran Khan had been disqualified – too now sits outside the lower house of Parliament after his resignation was accepted by Raja Pervez Ashraf.
