The Punjab Assembly deputy speaker on Sunday withdrew his earlier order regarding convening of provincial assembly session tomorrow (Monday) that was summoned to hold voting on the no-confidence motion against speaker, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

PA Deputy Speaker Sardar Dost Mazari, who was thrashed, punched and rough handed during yesterday’s session at the hands of his PTI party members on conducting elections for new chief minister, seems to be indecisive regarding his decisions. 

He summoned provincial assembly session for tomorrow at 11:30am for holding vote on no-trust motion against Speaker Ch Pervaiz Elahi but after a few moments, the deputy withdrew his order and cancelled it. The deputy speaker had already issued agenda of the session that consisted of voting on no-confidence motion against speaker in his now-withdrawn-order. 

Speaker Pervaiz Elahi was also contesting for the CM office and lost it. But in yesterday’s melee in the provincial assembly, Elahi got injured and broke his arm.
