Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan demanded National Assembly Speaker Ayaz Saqid to resign immediately after accusing him of biased and mala fide intent as he prepared reference against Supreme Court judge Justice Asif Khosa which is to be file in Supreme Judicial Council.
“Ayaz Sadiq had revealed his bias earlier & now it is clear he is not fit to occupy Office of Speaker NA.
He must resign immediately,” tweeted Imran Khan. He argued that the NA speaker is going all out to save the corruption of former premier Nawaz Sharif who was disqualified by Supreme Court verdict in Panama case.

PTI chief questioned Ayaz Sadiq’s loyalties considering his remarks that his position as the speaker is not an investigative agency. “He forwarded reference against me and Jahangir Khan Tareen while rejecting the reference against Nawaz Sharif,” he added.
Ayaz's comment that his Office is not an investigative agency begs the question how he forwarded ref ag me & JKT while rejecting ref ag NS? https://t.co/15AiQ1AbOY— Imran Khan (@ImranKhanPTI) August 19, 2017
In the reference against Justice Khosa, the speaker said, “Unfortunately Mr. Justice Asif Saeed Khosa in his judgment dated 20th April, 2017 has attributed failure on the part of Honorouble Speaker to inquire into or to investigate the matter or to refer the matter to the Election Commission of Pakistan against respondent No. 1… This clearly smacks of personal grudge or bias of the Honourable Judge.”
