Islamabad (AP) — Pakistani opposition lawmakers pass a distrust resolution in parliament on Monday in hopes of expelling the Khan administration in blame for imran Khan’s mismanagement of the country’s economy. It started.
An alliance of opposition lawmakers, called the Pakistan Democratic Movement, is trying to separate Khan’s coalition partners, some of whom appear ready to abandon him.
Shahbaz Sharif, the opposition leader of the House of Representatives or the House of Representatives, has proposed a vote of no confidence against Khan.
Parliamentary Vice-Chairman Kasim Sri accepted the motion and postponed it until Thursday, when the three-day debate began before lawmakers voted. Pakistani opponents say they need 172 votes in a 342-seat house to expel the Khan administration.
Political turmoil continued after the opposition announced a vote of no confidence in Khan a few weeks ago, putting the government at risk. It was the most difficult challenge in Khan’s political life.
Development on Monday is the day after Khan at a rally that vowed to defeat the distrust resolution with the help of members from his own Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party and party alliance.
Kahn came to power in the 2018 elections and won 176 votes. He needs 172 votes to stay in power, but about 12 members of his ruling party have rebelled and accused Khan of miscontrolling the country’s economy.
“We are receiving the support of lawmakers needed to expel the Imran Khan administration,” Villawar Butt Zardari, the leader of the Pakistan People’s Party’s main opposition, told reporters.
However, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed vowed that the distrust resolution would be defeated.
