LAHORE: The no-confidence motion against Punjab Assembly Speaker Pervaiz Elahi was dismissed on Sunday after PML-N MPA Sami Ullah Khan, who had filed the no-trust motion against Elahi, failed to show up.
As the result, the much-anticipated session of the assembly has been postponed till June 6. The session — with the Panel of Chairmen Waseem Khan Badozai in the chair — was adjourned within six minutes despite it starting after a delay of two hours. As the assembly’s proceedings started, the speaker called out the name of PML-N MPA Sami Ullah Khan, who had filed the no-trust motion against Pervaiz Elahi, but he was not present in the House.
Due to his absence from the House, Badozai disposed of the motion and deferred the session.
Before the session, the MPAs reached the PA to attend the meeting previously scheduled to begin at 12:30pm. However, the session couldn’t be started on time as the lawmakers

were stopped from entering the premises.
