On Thursday, 180 lawmakers participated in the trust vote and declared that they had “full confidence” in Sharif’s ability to lead as Prime Minister.
Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, the foreign minister, proposed the resolution for the vote of confidence, and the majority of the National Assembly members agreed.
The National Assembly of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan expressed its full confidence in Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif’s ability to lead the nation in the resolution.
Following the resolution, a voting process was conducted, and lawmakers who supported the adoption of the resolution stood up from their seats.
The NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf then announced that 180 members of the House had risen from their seats in favor of the resolution.
The NA speaker further added that if late Mufti Abdul Shakoor had been present at the session, the premier would have garnered 181 votes in his support.
As a result, Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, now enjoys the support of the majority of the National Assembly’s members after receiving the vote of confidence from that body.
Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, addressed the House after the resolution was approved and expressed his gratitude to the lawmakers for their support. In addition to promising to support Parliament’s decisions, he gave them the assurance that he would never fail them.
Sharif mentioned the 2018 elections during his speech and referred to them as “fraud elections.” He claimed that the voting was fraudulent, and former Pakistani Chief Justice Saqib Nisar decided that the votes would not be counted.
The prime minister demanded an investigation into the rigging allegations and bemoaned the fact that there had not yet been one.
Additionally, he made reference to a recent audio clip that allegedly shows ex-CJP Nisar and PTI legal advisor Khawaja Tariq Rahim speaking about a prominent case that the Supreme Court is currently hearing and repeated the claim that the former judge was involved in “rigging” the 2018 elections to favour the PTI.
The premier emphasized that Parliament’s decisions were being challenged, and he pledged to stand by them no matter what.
He also criticised the judiciary for interfering with Parliament’s decisions, citing a Supreme Court decision that prevented the government from enforcing a law that would have reduced the CJP’s authority after it was passed.
The unexpected vote of confidence has strengthened Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif’s position, and he has promised to govern the nation with honesty and transparency.
Pakistan faces a variety of difficulties, and it is unclear how the new administration will handle them. The prime minister is better able to address these issues and guide the nation towards prosperity and advancement with the help of the National Assembly, though.
