Imran Khan no-trust vote: Pakistan President Arif Alvi dissolved the National Assembly on Pakistan on April 3, 2022, on the advice of Prime Minister Imran Khan. Elections are now expected in Pakistan in the next 90 days.

Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan in his address to the nation had earlier said that he has advised President Arif Alvi to dissolve all assemblies, following which an official notification was issued by President Arif Alvi.

“I have written to the President to dissolve the legislatures. Elections should be held democratically. I call upon the people of Pakistan to prepare for elections.” Imran Khan said in his live address.

It was declared unconstitutional and in conflict with Article 5 of the Constitution after Pakistan National Assembly Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri rejected a no-confidence motion against Pakistan PM Imran Khan.

Imran Khan called the no-confidence motion against him a foreign conspiracy. He said that Pakistan should decide who should rule over them. He said he was given three options before the trust vote – resign, hold early elections or face a no-confidence motion.

PPP President Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the government has violated the Constitution by not allowing voting on the no-confidence motion.
