Ayaz Sadiq’s official nomination for the post of Speaker National Assembly by the prime minister, and his submission of papers for the post has received a lot of attention from the social media. Ayaz Sadiq was deseated by an election tribunal in August when the PTI filed a petition challenging the 2013 elections. Ayaz Sadiq was sworn in as an MNA on Friday after which he thanked PM Nawaz for nominating him for the position.

However, this decision was met with mixed sentiments from the social media.

There were some who were praising the decision…

And were seen to be confident that the nomination would result in the election of Ayaz Sadiq as the speaker…

Whereas others weren’t too pleased about the entire scenario…

The PTI has nominated Shafqat Mahmood as its candidate for the post whose papers were submitted on Friday.
