On Monday, reports that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif would request a vote of confidence from the National Assembly were refuted by the information minister, Marriyum Aurangzeb.

Since taking office in April of last year, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led administration has faced numerous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) protests, a faltering economy, and a recent standoff with the judiciary.

The decision to hold a vote of confidence was not made by the prime minister. There were no such consultations, and the [vote of confidence] is unnecessary, according to a tweet from Aurangzeb.

Shehbaz, who took office as premier on April 11, 2022, was referred to by the minister as the “unanimous” choice of the populace, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and the coalition parties.

The information minister claimed that “rumours” are not facts and asked media outlets not to run news stories pertaining to the prime minister “without verification”.

The minister’s tweet came after sources told Geo News that the premier had decided to take a vote of confidence this week, while consultations with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif had been completed.

The prime minister, the sources said, had directed parliamentarians of all ruling parties to be present in Islamabad for the vote.
