PPP, PTI plan privilege motions against Abbasi in Senate

ISLAMABAD/LAHORE: Furious over Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s remarks casting aspersions on Sadiq Sanjrani’s election as Senate chairman, the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) have decided to table privilege motions against the prime minister for his statements, terming them an “insult to parliament”.

Talking to Dawn on Saturday, Opposition Leader in the Senate Sherry Rehman called upon the prime minister to tender an “apology” or be ready to face a strong protest.

Ms Rehman said the PPP had decided to move a privilege motion against the prime minister in the Senate as the party believed that he had been ridiculing parliament by continuing to target the Senate chairman.

PTI’s information secretary Fawad Chaudhry told Dawn that the party senators were also planning to move a privilege motion against Mr Abbasi for his statements against the first-ever Senate chairman from Balochistan.
