On Wednesday, Prime Minister Imran Khan stated that the constitution has provided an option for removing a sitting government through a no-confidence motion. He said, “If the opposition wants to move a no-confidence motion, they should come and do so in the assemblies”, while criticising the opposition’s plan to resign en masse from both national and provincial assemblies in order to force a new general election.
The premier stated that he is willing to have an open dialogue with the opposition as long as it is within the confines of the Pakistani Parliament. “Parliament is the best place for political dialogues and I’m ready to respond to all questions [in the parliament]. Democracy will only work when there is a debate.”, he said.
Prime Minister Khan, while speaking to the media, expounded upon how his government inherited “historic” deficits in every sectors when they came into power, as a result of which the major challenge for his government has been steering the country out of crisis.
Prime Minister Imran Khan also lambasted the opposition’s unwillingness to open a dialogue with the government now, he said “We have no problem and the government is ready to hold talks on any issue but NRO will not be discussed”. He added that the corruption cases registered against opposition politicians were during their own tenures and those cases will not be closed.
