PML(N) walks out of parliament in protest

The parliamentarians belong to the Pakistan Muslim League (N) created hoopla in the parliament session on Friday as they raised slogans against the convicted Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousaf Raza Gillani and demanded that he should resign on moral grounds. The session of the parliament had started with shouts and slogans against the government and the convicted PM and ended with the second largest political party of the parliament walking out in protest refusing to debate on the issue of the address of the President to the parliament demanding that Gilani should resign from the post of Prime Minister.

One of the members of the opposition who walked out of the session from both the houses, Zafar Ali Shah, spoke to the media and said, "We will not participate in the proceedings till Gilani's resignation."

The leader of PML (N) requested the chairman of the Senate to abide by the law and not start a debate on the issue of the President of Pakistan addressing the House before a detailed verdict of the case of the convicted PM is released by the Supreme Court. The ruling party, PPP, on the other hand decided to ignore the step taken by PML (N) and continued to work on the proceedings for the session demanding a combined address to both houses by the President as PML (N) walked out of the Houses.
