Both resignations were sent via courier service, Sindh Assembly secretary Umer Farooq told The Express Tribune. “As per rules, the MPAs need to show up personally and tender their resignations,” he said. The speaker has the power to decline a resignation and to scrutinise it before making a decision. “We will examine their resignations” he stated. Subsequently, after accepting the resignations, the speaker will de-notify their seats followed by by-elections.
