Pakistan's parliament votes on no-confidence vote on Saturday, Khan: I will not accept an "imported" government

Pakistan's parliament votes on no-confidence vote on Saturday, Khan: I will not accept an "imported" government Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed his frustration with the Supreme Court's decision to prevent parliament's vote of no confidence in his government being unconstitutional. Khan announced a nationwide protest on Sunday and said he would not accept an "imported" government in the country.  Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has expressed his frustration with the Supreme Court's ruling that the ban on Parliament's vote of no confidence in his government was unconstitutional.  Imran Khan, in a speech to his people, on Friday, accused the United States of orchestrating a plot to oust him.  "My Minister Atif Khan informed me that some of our members have been invited to the US Embassy in Islamabad and they have been told that a vote of no confidence is coming," Khan said.  The Pakistani Prime Minister announced a nationwide protest on Sunday, and said he would not accept an "imported" government in the country.  On Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled that the prime minister's move to dissolve parliament was unconstitutional, and called on lawmakers to return within two days in a decision that could end Khan's presidency as soon as possible.  The constitutional crisis threatened economic and social stability in the nuclear-armed country of 220 million people, as the rupee hit an all-time low against the dollar on Thursday and foreign exchange reserves declined.  Khan, 69, who led Pakistan to victory in the Cricket World Cup in 1992, came to power in 2018 after rallying the country behind his vision of a corruption-free, prosperous country that is respected on the international stage.  If Khan loses the vote of no confidence, the opposition can nominate a prime minister and retain power until August 2023, when new elections are set.  The opposition says it wants early elections, but after it inflicts a political defeat on Khan and passes legislation it says is important to ensure that the next election is free and fair.  The Election Commission of Pakistan said Thursday that the earliest date it can hold elections is October.
