ISLAMABAD: Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief Sheikh Rasheed on Monday has predicted that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) will not be able to work together as opposition in National Assembly.
While talking to media, Sheikh Rasheed felicitated independence in a taunting way to Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman as he was not part of the parliament this time.
It is to be mentioned here that outgoing NA speaker Ayaz Sadiq administered oath to 331 MNAs-elect in the 342-member house during 15th session.
On the occasion, strict security arrangements were made as at least a thousand security men were deployed in and outside the parliament building.
The Constitution makes it mandatory to convene NA session within 21 days of general elections.
However, elections for Speaker and Deputy Speaker of National Assembly will be held on August 15 (Wednesday).
According to schedule issued by NA Secretariat, the nomination papers for Speaker and Deputy Speaker could be submitted in the office of Secretary National Assembly by Tuesday.
