Imran Khan sails through the Parliament exam | Instant News

New Delhi, 18 Nov The joint session of the Pakistani Parliament was an opportunity for Prime Minister Imran Khan to prove his majority in Parliament, which he did.

With the support of 221 votes from its party members and allies, the government drove through the session amid the Opposition protests, the Express Tribune reported.

Apart from speeches by opposition lawmakers, urging National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser to postpone the session so that both sides can sit down together and discuss agenda items; their hues and cries; slogan; around the Speaker’s desk; tore up the papers and heated debate with it, the government moved forward with legislative matters and passed 33 bills, the report said.

Pakistan’s opposition considers Prime Minister Imran Khan to have lost the confidence of his members and his allies in the National Assembly and Senate. However, he weathered this storm comfortably, the report said.

Last week, the government was defeated twice in the National Assembly and had to postpone sitting with parliament within 24 hours of its summons, as allies had distanced themselves from the government.

The opposition hopes, once again, that the government will not be able to complete the figures and will eventually fail to pass laws to change the voting system. They believe that they will have a chance to stop the government as they did a week ago.

However, when the votes were counted, the opposition found that seven of its members were absent for a variety of reasons – from health concerns to overseas visits, the report said.

The opposition has put on a brave face ahead of the joint session of parliament but Wednesday belongs to the treasury.

The joint assembly passed all the necessary laws, including the two main ones, which deal with holding the next election via electronic voting machines and allowing Pakistanis abroad to have the right to vote in future elections.
