Pakistan’s PM ousted in no-confidence vote

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan’s political opposition toppled Prime Minister Imran Khan in a no-confidence vote in Parliament early yesterday after several political allies and a key party in his ruling coalition deserted him.

The opposition, which spans the political spectrum from leftists to religious radicals, will form a new government. The head of one of the largest parties, a brother of disgraced former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, is likely to take over as prime minister if confirmed in a vote today.

Anticipating his loss, Khan, who charged the opposition colluded with the United States (US) to unseat him, has called on his supporters to stage rallies nationwide yesterday. Khan’s options are limited, though.
