On April 24, the speaker of Punjab Assembly blocked the opposition’s move in the house demanding prime minister’s resignation, but allowed the treasury to adopt a resolution reposing full trust in “active and sagacious” leadership of Nawaz Sharif.

The prime minister has been facing demands for resignation after the Joint Investigation Team presented its report to the apex court on July 10.

The JIT was tasked with probing the money laundering allegation against Sharif family in the light of Supreme Court orders in Panama Papers case.
