ISLAMABAD: National Assembly (NA) Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri on Sunday banned the members from calling Imran Khan “selected Prime Minister” in the House.

The ban was imposed after Federal Minister for Energy Omar Ayub Khan requested to move privilege motion to stop the use of word “selected Prime Minister” for Imran Khan.

“Calling Prime Minister Imran ‘selected’ is breach of our privilege and privilege of the House,” the minister said.

During the NA session, Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri imposed ban on the use of the word, stating that each member has secured a place in the house through votes of the people and the word comes as an offense to the house.
