ISLAMABAD – Former ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has decided to withdraw the resignations of their remaining 44 lawmakers whose resignations are yet to be accepted by the speaker in the latest move.

Asad Umar, senior PTI leader and close aide of Imran Khan, took to Twitter, announcing that the party had informed NA Speaker Raja Pervaiz Ashraf about the decision to withdraw resignations.

The PTI leader also mentioned their next step would be to get its member appointed as the Opposition Leader in the National Assembly.

The development comes days after National Assembly Speaker accepted 35 resignations of PTI lawmakers.

Fawad Chaudhry also shared a tweet about the withdrawal of resignations, saying the move comes in a bid to get posts of the leader of the opposition and parliamentary party leader.

The outspoken politician said they decided to take back the resignations to block the way of fake opposition leaders and to prevent turncoats from voting in favour of the premier in no-trust vote.

The National Assembly speaker after accepting the resignations sent the list to the Election Commission of Pakistan which later de-notified the fresh lot of 35 PTI lawmakers after completing the necessary action.

Over 125 PTI lawmakers earlier resigned from NA following the ouster of Imran Khan in April last year.
