Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan was removed Saturday midnight by a no-trust vote.
He become the first PM of Pakistan to be removed by a no-trust vote. A hyperactive Pakistan assembly saw the joint opposition of socialist, liberal and radically religious parties securing the support of 174 members in the 342-member assembly.
Although, Imran Khan was not present in the assembly when the process of the no-trust vote went on.
Shehbaz Sharif is the name that is likely to take over the post of the next Pakistan Prime Minister.
The high-decibel debates saw the Speaker and Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly resigning ahead of the court deadline for the no-trust vote.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari alleged that PM Imran Khan was trying to create a constitutional crisis. Moreover, Mr Khan was seeking military intervention in Pakistan’s political affairs by delaying the no-trust vote.
There was high security at airports and an alert was issued that no government official could leave the country without a No Objection Certificate (NOC).
Former PM Imran Khan had also called on the people of Pakistan to protect their country’s sovereignty.
He asked them to hit the streets and peacefully protest against an “imported government.”
However, the US rejected these allegations said there is “absolutely no truth” to these claims.
