Imran Khan loses majority as MQM Strikes Deal With Opposition

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday received a major blow by the main coalition partner Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM) after it struck a deal with the opposition Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).

“The united opposition and MQM have reached an agreement. Rabta committee MQM and PPP CEC will ratify the said agreement. We will then share details with the media in a press conference tomorrow IA. Congratulations Pakistan,” tweeted PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

The Khan government lost the majority in the lower house of the parliament following the late-night development ahead of the no-confidence motion against Imran Khan on March 31.

Pakistan’s joint opposition has now 177 members of the national assembly after the ruling coalition partner MQM-P has decided to part ways with the Imran Khan-led government that is left with 164 MNAs (Members of National Assembly).
