KP opp moves no-confidence motion against CM

PESHAWAR: Opposition parties in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly on Tuesday moved a no-confidence motion against Chief Minister Pervez Khattak. The move is seen as a pre-emptive measure to bar the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) from dissolving the assembly.  Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl’s lawmaker Lutfur Rehman told reporters that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Awami National Party (ANP) and Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) were on board. “The motion has been submitted to save the KP Assembly,” the JUI-F cleric said. A total of 48 opposition MPs signed the motion, QWP provincial president Sikandar Sherpao told Daily Times. JI leader Inayatullah said his party would vote for Pervez Khattak. “We are coalition partners and we are bound to vote for him,” he was quoted as saying when a journalist approached him.  In the 124-member KP Assembly, PTI has 56 lawmakers, the JI eight, Awami Jamhuri Ittehad five, PML-N 17, JUI-F 17, PPP five, ANP five, QWP 10 seats, while elections are yet to be held in PK 68-5 Dera Ismail Khan.
