PTI leaders Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, Arif Alvi and Shireen Mazari had on August 22 submitted resignations of 34 MNAs of their party in Speaker's office. The Secretary of the National Assembly had received those purported resignations. The Speaker National Assembly is yet to accept their resignations. PTI President Javed Hashmi's resignation was accepted by the National Assembly Speaker on September 5, 2014, as he had announced his resignation on the floor of the joint-sitting of the Parliament after his speech. However, PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi and other MNAs attended one sitting of the joint-session of the Parliament, but they did not announce their resignation on the floor of House.
