Pak Parliament set to appoint former PM Raja Pervaiz Ashraf as new speaker

Pakistan’s Parliament is set to meet on Saturday to appoint former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf as the new speaker and take up a no-confidence motion against deputy speaker Qasim Khan Suri for acting in favour of the previous government led by Imran Khan.

Ashraf, 71, from the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) will be given the oath of office after he was deemed elected as no other candidate on Friday submitted nomination papers against him till the 12-noon deadline.

Less than an hour before a session of the House where voting on a no-trust motion against him was to take place, Suri announced that he was stepping down from his post.
