Last week, Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party effectively lost its majority in the assembly when a key coalition partner announced that seven of its lawmakers would vote with the opposition.

According to media sources, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan is likely to address the nation from his home ahead of the trust vote, sparking speculation about a possible resignation.

Some big points for Imran Khan’s resignation

More than a dozen members of the ruling party have indicated that they will cross the floor, despite the fact that party leaders are attempting to have the courts prevent them from doing so.

Mr Imran Khan called on supporters to take to the streets on Saturday to peacefully protest against what he described as an international “conspiracy” to depose him. During a public question-and-answer phone-in broadcast by state media, he said, “I want you all to protest for an independent and free Pakistan.”

Mr Khan accused the US of meddling in Pakistan’s affairs earlier this week. He accused the opposition of working with Washington to depose him because he refuses to support the West in global conflicts with Russia and China.

The Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) lead the opposition, two traditionally feuding dynastic groups that dominated national politics for decades until Khan formed a coalition against them.

If Mr Imran Khan resigns, Shehbaz Sharif of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) is expected to take over as prime minister, but the government moved on Saturday to remand him in custody pending a trial on money-laundering charges that have been pending since 2020.

Mr Sharif is the younger brother of three-time Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who was deposed and imprisoned in 2017 on corruption charges and is currently in Britain for medical treatment after being released from prison two years later.

Some analysts believe Mr Khan has lost the military’s support, which both sides deny, and Pakistan’s army is crucial to political power.

Mr Imran Khan, a former international cricketer who led Pakistan to their only World Cup victory in 1992, hinted that he might still have a card to play. “I have a plan for tomorrow (Sunday), you should not be worried about it. I will show them and will defeat them in the assembly.”

No Pakistani prime minister has ever served a full term, and he is the third to face a no-confidence vote.
