Raja Pervaiz Ashraf likely to elect new speaker National Assembly unopposed

Former PM  and senior PPP leader Raja Pervaiz Ashraf is the only candidate who submitted nomination papers for speaker's election tomorrow

Senior PPP leader and former Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf is likely to elect unopposed as new speaker of National Assembly as no other candidate submitted nomination papers to contest the election.

The session of the National Assembly to elect the speaker and to vote on the motion of no-confidence against deputy speaker Qasim Suri will take place tomorrow April 16. The deputy speaker Qasim Suri earlier changed the schedule of the national Assembly session from April 16 to April 22. The Qasim Suri is likely to be ousted from his position tomorrow.

Raja Pervaiz Ashraf's nomination papers for the National Assembly speaker's slot have been submitted as he seeks to assume the office that fell vacant after the resignation of speaker Asad Qaiser. He is the joint candidate of the coalition government.  

PTI's Asad Qaiser had stepped down from office on April 9 — on the day Islamabad witnessed intense political activities when the voting on the no-confidence motion was set to take place.

Following his resignation, MNA Ayaz Sadiq chaired the session, and on April 10 at midnight, Khan was voted out of power, making him the first prime minister to be ousted through the democratic process.
