The joint opposition has chalked out a strategy for casting votes during the no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Sources revealed to 24News TV channel on Saturday that the joint opposition has decided to tentatively ask the PTI dissident members to stay away from casting their votes against their party so that the process of voting would not become controversial in light of the forthcoming Supreme Court judgement on the presidential reference that has sought apex court’s interpretation of Article 63-A of Constitution that might invoke disqualification of the dissident members. 

The sources divulged that though the dissident members would be brought to the Parliament House but they would not take part in the voting.

The joint opposition believes that with the help of its allies, it would achieve the required numbers in the lower house sans dissidents’ votes. 

Sources said in case the opposition feels that it is short of numbers, then it would ask the dissidents to cast their votes in favour of no-trust motion. 

Opposition sources said though the dissidents are willing to vote against prime minister, but the opposition does not want to make the process controversial.
