The crisis regarding the stability of the Imran Khan government in Pakistan has deepened completely. Imran Khan has suffered a major setback even before the floor test. Two ministers of MQM, an ally in the Imran Khan government, have compromised with the opposition by resigning from the cabinet. Political upheaval continues in Pakistan after opposition parties presented a no-confidence motion in front of the National Assembly Secretariat on March 8. There will be a debate in the House on March 31 regarding the no-confidence motion. However, even before the majority test, the government’s ally MQM has compromised with the PPP, after which the Imran government has lost its majority.
Imran lost majority before floor test!
On March 8, a no-confidence motion was presented by the opposition parties in front of the National Assembly Secretariat, after which Imran Khan’s chair remains in danger. The government led by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has been held responsible for the economic crisis and rising inflation in the country. Voting on the proposal is to be held on April 3. Before this, on March 31, the National Assembly will discuss the no-confidence motion.
Mathematics of Pakistan National Assembly
There are a total of 342 members in the Pakistan National Assembly. Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party has 155 members in the 342-member National Assembly. This means they need at least 172 MPs to retain power. Imran bridged this gap by forming a coalition government. The ruling government led by PTI with Pakistan Muslim League (Q) – 5 seats, Balochistan Awami Party – 5 seats, Muttahida Quami Movement-Pakistan – 7 seats, Grand Democratic Alliance – 3 seats and Awami Muslim League – 1 seat and Independent members A coalition was formed. With the support of these parties and independent members, Khan’s government had a majority of 179 members.
According to a report by Pakistan-based daily Dawn, the United Opposition has so far secured the support of 169 members. This leaves him three short of the 172 votes needed to secure a majority in the National Assembly and remove Imran Khan from the post of Prime Minister, so the MQM-P’s decision is considered important.
