Lawmakers from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) have decided to appear before National Assembly Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf for the verification of their resignations, reports Geo News.

The lawmakers are likely to appear either on Wednesday or Thursday.

The Speaker has yet to take action on the resignations as PTI legislators have failed to get a response after they wrote a letter to him


On December 15, PTI leader and former federal minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that the party would be seeking time from the National Assembly speaker for the verification of their MPs’ resignations.

He also denied speculations that the party’s lawmakers are still receiving salaries.

“Judges should verify the reports that show up on media. The reality is that this is another lie told by the government. The salaries of the resigned members are suspended and no member is getting any salary,” said Fawad.

A day earlier, the PTI chief announced that both Punjab and KP assemblies will be dissolved on December 23.
