Pakistan Opposition submitted a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan with the country’s National Assembly secretariat. The Pakistan National Assembly adjourned Friday without tabling the no-confidence session against Prime Minister Imran Khan till 4pm on March 28 due to the demise of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf lawmaker Khayal Zaman.

Pakistan has been on the edge since Opposition parties on March 8 submitted a no-confidence motion, alleging that the PTI government led by Prime Minister Khan was responsible for the economic crisis and the spiralling inflation in the country.
