Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been removed from office after no-confidence motion against him succeeds.

  • Pakistan PM Imran Khan has been removed from office on Sunday after a no-confidence motion brought against him succeeds by 174-0.
  • This is the first time a no-confidence motion against a prime minister of Pakistan has been successful.
  • Speaker Asad Qaiser who was to preside over the vote ordered by the Supreme Court, resigned before the vote.
  • A defiant Khan says he is in a fight to protect the country’s sovereignty and has called his supporters to the streets to defy opponents determined to unseat him.
    Khan acted unconstitutionally last Sunday in blocking the no-confidence vote and dissolving parliament, the Supreme Court ruled on Thursday, ordering parliament to reconvene.
