Pakistan: Supreme Court decides tomorrow on Prime Minister Khan’s fate

(ANSA) – ROME, APRIL 04 – The Supreme Court of Pakistan will decide the fate of the prime minister, Imran Khan, after Parliament rejected a motion of no confidence in him with the consequent dissolution of the national assembly by the president Arif Alvi and the early legislative elections. The BBC reports online.

Khan had branded the motion as “unconstitutional” and as “foreign interference” in Pakistani affairs hatched by the United States. The opposition accuses the premier of poor government management and bad economic policy and, after the no-confidence motion was rejected, he petitioned the Supreme Court to decide whether the move to block the vote was constitutional.

Initially the court should have decided by today, but then postponed the decision until tomorrow.
