Pakistan Crisis LIVE Updates: National Assembly Adjourned Till 7:30 pm; Imran Khan Calls Emergency Cabinet Meeting Tonight
Pakistan News Live Updates: Pakistan Parliament’s session, to take up the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, has resumed after an adjournment. But indications are that the vote may be delayed because the government is pressing for a discussion on the so-called “foreign conspiracy” behind it.
Today’s proceedings began sharp at 10.30 am as per the orders of the Supreme Court but the PTI looked like in no hurry to let the crucial vote happen. Speeches dragged on, and so did government demands for discussion on the ‘foreign conspiracy’ – which Khan alleged was masterminded by the US to remove him. A break taken abruptly at noon lasted more than three hours.
The Opposition parties need 172 votes in the no-trust motion to make Khan’s government fall. It seems they have more than that number, with some of Khan’s ruling allies having crossed the floor. The 69-year-old cricketer-turned-politician tried to outmaneuver the opposition by trying to get the government dismissed and going for fresh elections, but that was scuttled by that country’s top court which ruled that the no-trust vote should happen.
