Imran Khan removed as Pakistan PM after no-confidence motion against him passes

Pakistan PM Imran Khan has been removed from office after a no-confidence motion brought against him passed today (Sunday in Pakistan) by 174-0 in the Pakistani parliament.

Members of the ruling party abstained but in the 342-member National Assembly, 172 votes were needed to approve the motion.

This is the first time a no-confidence motion against a prime minister of Pakistan has been successful.

Within minutes of the passing the no-confidence motion, Imran Khan vacated his official residence but the defiant, ousted prime minister says he is in a fight to protect the country’s sovereignty and has called his supporters to the streets to defy opponents determined to unseat him.

Khan acted unconstitutionally last Sunday in blocking the no-confidence vote and dissolving parliament.

In a ruling on Thursday, the Pakistan Supreme Court ordered parliament to reconvene.

      Only a idiot would focus and make such nonsensical comments.

      Besides; all the money used for reconstruction were freely given by governments around the world, and private individuals, even poor Dominicans like the women who gave a certain rough face Dominica woman who was a government minister, ten thousand US dollars to help the unfortunate, which she thief!

      Why are you not talking about that, to this day the women want to find out what the Dominica thief did with their money, she can’t account for it to this day.

      All of you red devils are thieves; you all, all you do is sell passports and thief the money!

      A corrupt electoral system, bribery, lazy and cowardly journalists, a politically biased, non-performing media, and a indolent and indifferent electorate, all these are responsible for Skerrit and his cabinet of subservient buffoons stay in power.

      The Skerrit-led tyrannical autocracy has illegally installed and kept itself in power due to the reasons listed earlier. Why does any fair minded, rational person think that Skerrit have stubbornly and robustly resist fair electoral reforms for this inordinate length of time?

    This is a good example for Dominicans to follow , all corrupted leaders should have not place in that position. They should all be booted form office. These lazy guys came into power in Da by default and had no knowledge about how to run a country . The never even took the time to learn , instead they took advantage of the void that was filled by the suspicious passing of two great men. Dominica had never been in a worse financial and leadership vacuum. These corrupt guys will soon be kicked out of office.

      @Massacre, if you believe in democracy, you would condemn such coups engineered by the far reaching arms of Uncle Sam. The US claim to be the bastion of democracy but whenever a weaker nation don’t tow their line, that’s usually the result, a coup to topple the legitimately elected leader and replace them with a puppet that bow to his wishes. Imran Khan was the most decent leader Pakistan had in recent times but because he did not bow to the Americans demands in a bid to isolate Russia, he had to go. Is this the new world order that we are all prepared to be subjected to? Shouldn’t all nations and their people have a right to decide their own destinies rather than being dictated to by a super power?

    I didn’t like what happened to Imran Khan.After he cleaned up his party boy image and became a conservative Muslim when he entered politics I had tremendous hopes for him.But as they say any leader in Pakistan that is not somewhat subservient to the USA somehow gets kicked out by the corrupt army(who’s leaders all support the USA).His demised was hastened when Imran refused to condemn the Russian invasion in Ukraine and the army withdraw it’s support of him.( No doubt the USA bidding)

    Why do Politicians all over the Universe believe that once they are voted into office the Country belongs to them and that they should do as they please and not the people’s will. This is how democracy is supposed to work and not this nonsense like we have in Dominica “I poto weee” my a—.
