Attorney General Khalid Javed has said that no member of the Assembly can be prevented from participating and voting in the no-confidence motion filed by the opposition against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Speaking on Geo News program New Pakistan, the Attorney General said that the first question is what is the constitutional and legal significance of this vote.

He also said that there was ambiguity as to whether the vote should be counted or not.

On the other hand, on the issue of no-confidence motion, the Speaker of the National Assembly Asad Qaiser had consulted the Assembly Secretariat and the Law Department on legal aspects.
