Islamabad: PML-Q senior leader Chaudhry Pervez Elahi has said that Ayaz Sadiq is elected as speaker of National Assembly (NA) unanimously, so that democratic traditions like other countries could prevail in Pakistan. He held that office of NA speaker is office of neutrality and equality, therefore, all opposition parties should elect Ayyaz Sadiq for the office of speaker unanimously.

He went on to say that speaker is elected unanimously in all other countries, including England. Responding to a question he said “We will talk to PPP and PTI for electing NA speaker unanimously. Return of MQM to parliament is a good omen.”
