Pakistani parliament outs PM Imran Khan in vote of no confidence
Members of Pakistan’s parliament have voted to remove Prime Minister Imran Khan from office.
This comes only days after the Prime Minister foiled a similar effort, according to Al-Jazeera.
The motion was passed on Saturday, after the country’s Supreme Court determined that the cricketer-turned-politician had behaved unconstitutionally by earlier stalling the process and dissolving parliament.
The no-confidence motion, which required 172 votes in the 342-seat parliament to pass, was supported by 174 lawmakers.
Khan, 69, surged to power in 2018 via military support, but recently lost his parliamentary majority when allies quit his coalition government.
Opposition parties say he has failed to revive an economy battered by COVID-19 or fulfil promises to make Pakistan corruption-free.
