The second session of Punjab Assembly held on August 16, 2018 led to the election of Speaker and Deputy Speaker. In an astonishing development, Ch. Pervaiz Ilahi was elected as Speaker. He had the support of Pakistan Tehrik e Insaaf. Not only that but he was able to seek votes of 15 PMLN members and 2 PPP members. Following that fact, the opposition parties have started to blame Ilahi and PTI for horse trading in the house.
It is the same situation as did emerged in 2008. At that time PMLN did horse trading and got vote of PMLQ members. Time is revising itself but now against PMLN.
