Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) president Maulana Fazlur Rehman has that the united opposition will hold countrywide protests against the “unconstitutional measures” of the government regarding voting on the no-confidence motion and the dissolution of the National Assembly, Aaj News reported.

The deputy speaker gave an unconstitutional ruling by not allowing the no-confidence motion against PM Imran and then the president dissolved the NA on the advice of the premier, Fazl said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.

He said that the unconstitutional actions of the deputy speaker was an attack on democracy and hurtling the country in the direction of anarchy. "Any delay in the verdict from the Supreme Court will further increasing restlessness among the masses."

The JUI-F chief urged the Supreme Court to strike down the deputy speaker’s ruling and allow the opposition to oust PM Imran through a no-confidence motion so that the opposition could elect a new prime minister and announce fresh elections in due time.

Fazl said that PM Imran is unconstitutionally occupying the seat, as he has been de-notified by the Cabinet Division, urging state institutions not to treat him as the premier.
