Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has been deposed by a no-confidence vote in parliament, days after he blocked a similar attempt.

Iran PressAsia: Pakistan's lawmakers on Saturday voted to boot Prime Minister Imran Khan from office in a motion of no confidence, days after he blocked a similar attempt by having the parliament dissolved and calling for fresh elections.

Opposition parties were able to secure 174 votes in the 342-member National Assembly in support of the motion, the house speaker said, making it a majority vote.

There were just a few legislators of Khan's ruling party present for the process.

The result means Khan will no longer hold office and the Assembly members will now elect a new prime minister and government.

Thus, the last stage of the soft US-Saudi political coup against the Pakistani government, namely the removal of Imran Khan, came to fruition.

Imran Khan had previously announced on Twitter that he had been the target of a US plot to oust him because of his independent foreign policy and disagreement with establishing a foreign base on Pakistan's soil.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Friday that he will not accept any "imported government" in Pakistan as he expressed disappointment over the Supreme Court's verdict on the National Assembly deputy speaker's controversial decision on the rejection of the no-trust motion against him.

In a live address to the nation ahead of the no-trust motion on Saturday, 69-year-old Khan asked his supporters to join him on the street on Sunday evening.

In a live televised speech on Friday night, Imran Khan said that the Americans were aware of the opposition's conspiracy against the Prime Minister and that even their diplomats in Islamabad had secretly met with members of parliament.

No government in Pakistan has been able to complete its five-year legal term since independence. 219
