Imran Khan

In the recent news, Pakistan’s Supreme Court overturned Prime Minister Imran Khan’s strategy to hold an election, a move that could bring the opposition to power within days. A board of five judges on Thursday termed as unconstitutional a parliamentary ruling that nullified a no-confidence vote against Imran Khan and reinstated the vote to Saturday. The unanimous judgment stated that the cabinet and parliament still stand.


Pakistani Currency Taking a Hit in the Nationwide Political Crisis


Furthermore, due to the recent political crisis, the Pakistani rupee is trading at a record low against the U.S. dollar. According to the latest data, the nation’s foreign currency reserves dropped to $11.3 billion as of April 1, the lowest in about two years and enough to cover a couple of months of imports. Moreover, Prime Minister Imran Khan faces a possible exit but has, once again, swore to “fight” after his intent to keep the opposition at bay against a no-confidence vote failed. 


The Supreme Court has ruled that the president’s action to dissolve Parliament on Khan’s suggestion was unlawful and ordered the National Assembly to be restored. Imran Khan will now face a no-confidence vote by politicians that he attempted to evade after the parliament deputy speaker threw out the no-confidence motion earlier this week. The National Assembly is planned to meet on Saturday and the opposition appears to be certain to overthrow Khan.


“My message to our nation is I have always and will continue to fight for Pak till the last ball,” the former national cricket team captain on Twitter after the top court’s decision which has been dubbed as “historic”. The people should decide what they want, not foreigners. Buying people’s support with money has resulted in this (situation). Put that money into something better, for orphanages etc. I implore the nation to prepare for elections. You will decide the future of this nation, not foreigners or corrupt people,” stated Imran Khan in his nationwide address.
