In a move that stumped the opposition Pakistan’s embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he has advised President Arif Alvi to dissolve the National Assembly and call for fresh elections.

In a brief address to the nation, Khan said he has advised President Alvi to dissolve assemblies.

His announcement came minutes after National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Sur dismissed a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Khan, terming it a contradiction of Article 5 of the Constitution.

I congratulate every Pakistani on the Speaker’s decision. The no-confidence motion was a foreign conspiracy against us. Pakistan should decide who should govern them, said PM Imran KHan in his address to the nation

With Assembly dissolution proposal, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan claims foreign conspiracy to topple Pakistan govt failed

Earlier in dramatic move, Pakistan National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Khan Suri on Sunday dismissed a no-trust motion against embattled Prime Minister Imran Khan, terming it against Article 5 of the Constitution.

Opposition lawmakers, who earlier appeared confident of the success of the no-trust move as they made their way to Parliament House, protested against the decision.

The Opposition parties need 172 members of the 342-member National Assembly to orchestrate the defeat of Khan and already they have claimed the support of 177 members, more than the needed strength to oust the prime minister.

I sympathize with the people of PML-N. There is one family in which the father says he wants to be PM & the son is dreaming of becoming the CM. They have no shame. People of Pakistan hate them, Pak minister Ch Fawad Hussain was quoted as saying by ANI

Government has violated the Constitution, didn’t allow voting on the no-confidence motion. The united opposition is not leaving parliament. Our lawyers are on their way to Supreme Court, said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairman, PPP
