Thats true They should stop using the sources once resignations are formally accepted. Universal law. No need of clarification!

It says in the article itself that the resignations have not been accepted yet. Its up to the speaker to do so. Same is the case with the NA. Resignations have been submitted. PMLN has intentionally held on to them, because they know that once they accept resignations, things will deteriorate for them even further. Right now, they can try to rope PTI into the realm of the assemblies, so they are holding off.
