Imran Khan Loses Key Ally Ahead of No-Trust Vote

Date:

Islamabad: The fate of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is hanging as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government received a massive blow from a key ally and the main coalition partner Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM) after it struck a deal with the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) ahead of the no-trust vote.

“The united opposition and MQM have reached an agreement. Rabta committee MQM and PPP CEC will ratify the said agreement. We will then share details with the media in a press conference tomorrow IA. Congratulations Pakistan,” tweeted PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

The united opposition and MQM have reached an agreement. Rabta committee MQM & PPP CEC will ratify said agreement. We will then share details with the media in a press conference tomorrow IA. Congratulations Pakistan.

As things stand currently, the Imran Khan government has lost its majority in the lower house of Pakistan’s Parliament following the late-night development days ahead of the no-confidence motion or no-trust vote against Imran Khan.

Pakistan’s joint opposition has now 177 members of the national assembly after the ruling coalition partner MQM-P decided to part ways with the Imran Khan-led government is left with 164 MNAs (Members of National Assembly).

Notably, in order to make the no-confidence motion against the Prime Minister successful, Pakistan’s joint opposition requires the support of 172 MNAs.

The Pakistani National Assembly has a total strength of 342 members, with the majority mark being 172. The PTI-led coalition was formed with the support of 179 members, but now, after MQM-P left the party, PTI is standing with 164 members in support and the Opposition has now 177 members of supporters in the national assembly and they don’t need the support of disgruntled PTI MNAs.

Meanwhile, after Imran Khan alleged that some people are trying to topple his government with the help of foreign funds, federal minister Asad Umar claimed that the PM is ready to show a letter to the Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial to back his claims.

The no-trust vote against Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is expected to take place on April 3.
