Islamabad: Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections.
Leaders of opposition parties in the National Assembly, in a joint press conference, slammed the government for bulldozing parliament to pass the FATF bill.
Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif said that the proceedings of the House were trampled underfoot. Today is a dark day in the history of democracy. The government has crossed the line today. Anyone can be arrested without giving a reason. So far, the opposition has sided with the government in the interest of Pakistan. The opposition strongly condemns the government's attitude. Today, for the first time, the Leader of the Opposition was not allowed to speak in the House. It was not the prerogative of the Speaker to stop. The Speaker disappointed everyone. The APC will take a final decision on the attitude of the government.
Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that now we have only one option left and that is mistrust. The government could have conducted a recount but did not do it for fear of exposure. Attacked, we had the right to express our position in the House, the Speaker has no right to stop the Leader of the Opposition, the right to warrant has been revoked before the arrest of the people, we are serious about this in the party conference yesterday. Will talk,
Maulana Asad-ur-Rehman of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) said that constitutional, legal and constitutional requirements were violated in the joint sitting of the parliament. The bills passed today have no legal status if we accept Shariah on guns. Otherwise, legislation under pressure is not acceptable either. The unelected person forbade the Speaker to give two minutes to the opposition parties. We will discuss this seriously in the APC. Our concerns are serious.
