PM of Pakistan Imran Khan has suffered a major setback. The Muttahida Quami Movement Pakistan (MQM), the main coalition partner of Imran-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party, has joined hands with the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). With which the Imran government has lost its majority in the lower house of the Pakistan Parliament. PPP President Bilawal Bhutto Zardari gave this information by tweeting and wrote that “Joint Opposition and MQM have reached an agreement. Raabta Committee MQM and PPP CEC will ratify the said agreement. After this we will discuss with the media in a press conference tomorrow.” Will share the details. Congratulations Pakistan.”
With 177 members, the opposition now has a larger number of supporters in the National Assembly. Whereas on the other hand only 164 members are left in the Parliament of Pakistan. Actually, there are a total of 342 members in the Pakistani National Assembly, in which 172 members are needed for a majority. The PTI-led coalition had the support of 179 members. But now, after the MQM-P left the party, the PTI is left with only 164 members. At the same time, the number of supporters in the National Assembly has now increased to 177 with the opposition.
At the same time, Imran Khan had alleged that some people are trying to topple his government with the help of foreign funds. PM Imran had said during his rally, ‘Efforts are being made to change the government in Pakistan through foreign money. Our people are being used. Mostly unknowingly, but some people are using money against us. Put pressure on us. We have been threatened in writing. But we will not compromise on the national interest.”
