Imran Khan’s party effectively lost majority in the assembly last week when a coalition partner said its seven lawmakers would vote with the opposition.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is set to face the no-confidence vote in the National Assembly today that could see him thrown out of office.
The former international cricketer’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party effectively lost majority in the 342-member assembly last week when a coalition partner said its seven lawmakers would vote with the opposition.
However, a defiant Mr Khan has said he will not resign and insisted he will “fight till the last ball”. He also appealed to his supporters to take to the streets to peacefully protest against what he said was a “conspiracy” hatched outside Pakistan to unseat him.
No Pakistan Prime Minister has ever completed a full term. If Mr Khan goes, former Pakistani PM Nawaz Sharif’s brother Shehbaz Sharif is tipped to become the next prime minister.
